It is never a simple coincidence. It is axiomatic that the controlling depth of water and the peculiarities of the channels in a port fix the limits of ship sizes which can be accommodated in a given harbor. 6 meters (32 feet), there are two alternatives open to the potential charterer. One is to reject the offered ship because she is too large. The other is to accept the ship, load her only to the minimum depth, and make the best of the transaction. Circumstances prevailing in the freight market at the time when a decision must be reached will determine the alternative that is chosen.

The charterer provides the fuel; pays port entry, clearance, and agency fees; pilotage charges, tug hire, costs of loading and discharging cargo, including wharfage and dockage; and arranges for appropriate representation in the ports during voyages. 11 To illustrate the theory of the time charter, here is a simplified form of agreement for the use of a ship: This charter-party is made and concluded in New York the first day of October 1981 between Marine Carriers Company, of London, England, owners of the good British motors hip Sea Merchant, and Ocean Trading Corporation, of Newark, New Jersey, charterers of the said motors hip (described as being of the highest class at Lloyd's Register of Shipping, and of about 711,000 cubic feet grain capacity, 10,300 tons gross register, about 6,200 tons net register, and about 15,150 tons of 2,240 pounds deadweight capacity on a summer draft of 30 feet, with a service speed of 16J;2 knots on a consumption for all purposes of about 25 tons of best grade fuel oil), now in service and trading.

He may load any cargoes not prohibited by the charterparty, and may direct the ship to proceed wherever he desires within the limits fixed by the contract. The charterer has no connection with the navigation and operation of the vessel; he provides cargoes for the ship, keeps her busy, and pays the owner at the agreed rate per deadweight ton per month. If he fails to find employment for the vessel, he still must pay the owner the stipulated hire. The owner provides the crew, stores, and all necessary equipment for the vessel; pays all port charges incurred for and in behalf of the crew; and is responsible in all respects for the navigation and maintenance of the vessel, and the stowage, care, and safety of the cargo.
