Default Inclinometers , Where They Used On ...............

Greetings From New Orleans ,
Trivia Question ; Were Inclinometers used on the early steamboats to determine if they were properly loaded to avoid either a port or starb'd list ? For that matter if they were not , then by what means were the old river steamers loaded to prevent this situation from arising ? Even on the high tech and sophiscated ships that I go on today I will see an Inclinometer not only on the Bridge of the ship but in both the Captain's quarters and Chief Mate's office as well . Food for thought ??
Smooth Sailing !
