BALLAST

Water stored in tanks aboard ships to contribute to the trim and stability of the vessel. Ballast is pumped in and out from the sea to adjust the draft and distribute weight to control sag, hog, center of gravity, etc. This ballast can cause sweating on the exterior surface, which can contribute to coating failure.
