Samuel Plimsoll

11th Jul 2019

In topic we have learnt how Samuel Plimsoll introduced the Plimsoll line so that ships wouldn't sink so easily if they were overloaded.  This made the ships much safer to sail but the merchants weren't so happy because they weren't allowed to put heavier loads into the ships.
