    I am preparing a project for French administration. I need to know which is the difference between a "ponte" or "non ponte" boat. Although knowing that is related with the height of the deck, and consequently with the freeboard value; i have not found a clear definition of those both concepts...

    If anybody has any information, I would be very gratefull of read it.
