|Carpenter's Measurement: (L×B×D)/95. An unofficial North American measurement of a vessel's cargo capacity, very much popular in the 1800's. Carpenter's Measurement was calculated by multiplying the length of a vessel, measured on-deck from stem to sternpost, with the beam of the vessel and the depth of her hold, and dividing the result by 95.|
