As I kayaked around commercial ships I began to notice the beauty of the draft numbers. (This number shows the distance between the waterline and the bottom of the hull and indicates the minimum depth of water a ship or boat can safely navigate.)

Here are a few from my collection. When possible 
I’ve included the name of the vessel.
