Saturdays. In some ports Saturdays may be days of rest and treated as holidays.
They will then be excluded from “laytime”. Otherwise, and unless the charterparty expressly provides (as the “Baltimore Form C” charterparty does), Saturdays are like ordinary working days. If cargo work is carried out, those who ark involved in these operations may have to be paid at higher rates of pay (“penalty rates”) or at “overtime rates”. This does not prevent Saturday from being a “working day”, nor does a customary practice of not working on Saturdays.
