    In short “watertight” means prevention from the passage of water in any direction. The vessel's hull, main deck and bulkheads between watertight compartments must be watertight. Watertight bulkheads must be watertight at least up to the main deck. ... “Weathertight” means that water cannot penetrate into the vessel.
