Armada Tankers (Pacific), Ltd. v. The Procter and Gamble Co. (The “Lady Helene”) – SMA No. 3457, 24 Jun 1998

ASBATANKVOY -- LOADPORT -- TERMINAL -- BERTH -- CHANNEL -- GROUNDING -- DEADFREIGHT -- PORT -- NOR -- Charterer Award After the Owners’ rejection of the original loadport terminal, the berth was moved to Paktank Richmond at the Owners’ request. However, the Vessel grounded in the berth’s channel due to an incorrect draft publication.
