Just to give you an idea, one ship I was in, they converted the tween decks, that's the hatch, there's the main deck, and there's a tween deck, and then the bottom of the ship. Not the bottom of the ship, but the lower deck of the hold.

They converted all our tween decks into storage for T.N.T. They lined the walls, I'll call them walls, bulkheads, with plywood or plain wood, and copper nails, so they wouldn't rub on anything, on steel. All our tween decks on this particular ship were converted into places for T.N.T.
