Dimensions should indicate the official dimensions of the vessel. Input meters, not feet.

💡 Dimensions are described in terms of distance in meters to the positioning-system antenna used by AIS (e.g., GPS antenna).

A Distance in meters from Forward Perpendicular (FP)

B Distance in meters from After Perpendicular (AP)

C Distance in meters inboard from port side

D Distance in meters inboard from starboard side
