Lots of info here.  Manifold identification, Load Line, bulkhead markings, 'tug goes here' and two numbers you may not be familiar with.  On the right, just above 5C|4C is the number 106.  This indicates that frame number 106 is located here.  On the left, just above 6C|5C is the number 86, which indicates the location of frame 86.  The frames can be likened to the ship's skeleton.  They are numbered from aft toward the bow.
