Fore peak is the compartment (typically a ballast tank) arranged forward of the collision bulkhead.

Or fresh water tank. . . .

Not when you’re designing a ship according to the USSR Sanitary Rules from 1984 :wink:

It might not be ‘Fresh’, but it’s still the ship’s ‘potable’ water.

What kind of vessels have such tank arrangement? I have never seen a fresh (potable) water tank in the forepeak - it’s always either dry tank or, more commonly, a ballast water tank.

As for the Russians, the still-valid Sanitary Rules forbid having the fresh/potable water tank against against shell or any other tank (apart from dry tank/cofferdam or another fresh water tank).

My apologies,I meant that as a joke. The forepeak tank is most commonly ballast.

No problem. I’m terribly bad at recognizing jokes. :smiley:
