SKIN TANKS

On ships, tanks constructed just inside the hull for ballast, fuel oil, and void spaces. Some tanks are bounded by the side shell or bottom plating. The shell of the vessel is often referred to as the skin of the vessel. The significance is that these tanks can contain hot oil or cold water which influence the temperature of the steel of the outside surface.
