(2) The bow and stern are equipped with front and rear pointed cabins, which can be used to store fresh water or load ballast water to adjust the trim of the ship. In the event of a collision, it can prevent seawater from entering the large cabin, which plays a role of safety protection. (3) In order to facilitate cargo handling, general cargo ships generally have 2 to 3 decks. A general cargo ship with a deadweight of 10,000 tons has 5 to 6 cargo holds.
