Ship safeties were an important problem since the ship invention. Every shipwreck cause huge hazard, which make lots of casualties, properties loss, huge economic loss, and psychic trauma of dead relatives. Consider these, many ship safety work and design have been done and try to avoid the maritime loss. This letter introduces a design that mainly included carry cargo buoyancy tank with clapboard system. This anti-sink ship design with buoyancy tanks and clap board to protect ship safety quick and efficient. The cargo can be transport in the buoyancy tanks, without wasting space. The clap board have doors can be sealed as the second bottom when ship in danger. The system can be unfold in short time to enlarge draft areas, and then make ship anti-sink. When ship in danger, to unfold buoyancy tanks and sealed clap board, which can enlarge draft area and to anti-sink in short time. This anti-sink ship design thinking that try to make the shipping more safety than before.
