UNITED STATES v. THE REEFER KING

March 24, 1950

UNITED STATES
v.
THE REEFER KING



The opinion of the court was delivered by: BOWEN

In this case the libelant United States of America filed its Libel of Information against the respondent M.V. Reefer King, Official No. 249986, 527 gross tons, to recover penalties for failure of the vessel to have on board a certificate of inspection when on October 21, 1948, it departed from Seattle for Honolulu, in violation of Sec. 404, Title 46 U.S.C.A., and for failure of the vessel to comply with the requirements of the Load Line Act, Title 46 U.S.C.A. of the Load Line Act, Title 46 U.S.C.A. 88 to 881, inclusive, when it departed on that voyage.

The shipowner denied the vessel was required to comply with any of the provisions of any of said sections because the vessel was operating under a bareboat charter and engaged exclusively in carrying the charterer's cargo, and was not carrying any cargo for hire.
