What is the difference between the effect of breaching a warranty in marine insurance law and in carriage of goods law?

Whereas in carriage of goods law breach of warranty only allows the injured party to sue for damages, in insurance law breach of a warranty is a breach of an essential term, giving the insurer the right to repudiate the contract, i. e. it has the same effect as a breach of condition in carriage of goods law.
