CARELESS WORDS COST MONEY

The author discusses the savings that can accrue to shipowners if they are attentive and careful as to the wording of charter parties. Some of the matters touched upon are: time charters; specificity as to whether pilotage is compulsory; responsibility for the loading, unloading, stowage and trimming of cargo; clarification on the use of watchmen; hold cleaning responsibility; and a working definition of lagtime.
