Why this course?
Tankers are ships that carry liquid cargo, normally oil. Some are built for petroleum oil, while some are for vegetable oils and chemicals like caustic soda.
When used to carry oil, the freeboard (the portion above the water level) of the ship is usually less than other ships. This is because the oil cargo is lighter than water and can contribute to the buoyancy of the ship if the ship's hull is damaged
