- adj. Alternative spelling of waterborne.
from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- Nautical, supported or sustained by the pressure of the water: said of a vessel or other object partly in and partly out of water. A vessel is partly water-borne when some part of it rests on the bottom so that its weight is supported partly by the ground and partly by its buoyancy in the water; a vessel completely water-borne is afloat.
- Borne or conveyed by water; carried in a boat or vessel; floated.
