Abstract:Time lost as a result of breakdown of the vessel's cargo handling gear or motive power is for the owners' own account and shall therefore not count as laytime or time on demurrage. An exception to this rule is if the breakdown is caused by negligence of the stevedores who are deemed the servants of the charterers, or if the breakdown is caused by the charterers not following the master's instructions on how to handle such gear. Stevedore damage is another area repeatedly generating arguments and disputes and a new sub-clause(c)(Stevedore Damage)has therefore been inserted to deal with the problem. The stevedore damage provisions place upon the master an obligaion to endeavor to obtain the stevedores' written ackowledgment of liability once such damage has been discovered. However,the fact that the master may be unsuccessful in getting such acknowledgment from the stevedores does not exonerate the charterers grom liability for stevedore damage.
