How much will a salvor’s special compensation be under Article 14 of the Salvage Convention, and who is liable to pay it?

It will equal his expenses, i. e. out-of-pocket expenses reasonably incurred in the salvage operation, and a fair rate for equipment and personnel actually and reasonably used. It is paid by the shipowner (who will normally be reimbursed by his P&I club).
