Could a master clause a bill of lading in the previous question without making it “dirty”?


Where a charter party requires the master to sign “clean” bills of lading as presented by charterers, “clean” has been held to mean only that the bill of lading should not be claused to the effect that demurrage was due at the loading port, without affecting the master’s right to clause the bill of lading as to the apparent order and condition of the goods, where necessary.

What should a master do if rusty steel is presented for loading?

What should a master do at a loading port where a contractual lien for demurrage is given by the charter party terms, and demurrage is due but not paid?
