Pratt v Aigaion Insurance Co SA

Court of Appeal

“A marine insurance term requiring the warranted owner and/or his experienced skipper to be on board and in charge at all times with one experienced crew member, was not to be read literally but construed in the context of the policy as a whole and the surrounding circumstances; so construed, it applied when the vessel was being navigated or manoeuvred but not when it was tied up in dock.”
