Draft Limit The draft limit is the maximum allowable draft, in feet, as assigned by the Naval Sea Systems Command. As shown, it is the average of the distances at the bow and at the stern between the waterline and the keel. It serves as a guide against overloading in connection with strength and/or ability to survive underwater damage. 2/1/2013 14:47:22
