Fridays and Holidays excepted and Fridays and Holidays included (FHEX and FHINC).
It was said, of periods which are generally excepted from laytime, that “… there may, of course, be days in some ports, such as the Mohammedans Friday, which are not working days . . .” (Reardon Smith v. Ministry of Agriculture, 1963.) If the vessel is loading, for example, in an Islamic country but discharging in a non- Islamic country which does not treat a Friday as a “holy day”, Sundays would not be excepted from the counting of laytime unless the laytime clause specified which day was not to be counted as laytime in the different ports.
