Towing Agreement with the University of Minnesota: Authorization to negotiate and enter into an agreement with the university to perform the towing on the Minneapolis and St Paul campus,” which can be automatically renewed each year, unless the contract is terminated. When a ship is the victim of an accident or is in a dangerous situation, the master must make an urgent decision and request towing services in the case of a contract, if it is a towing and, if LOF is accepted, his general principles of contract law, known as salvage, apply to towing contracts. Towing contracts are not contracts in which a party is in principle required to disclose all essential facts knowingly of the parties and the circumstances. As defined in English law, it is essentially a service from one ship to another ship for a fixed fee. The most common reason for the requirement of this service is the lack of its own driving force. Conventionally, towing is defined as “the use of one ship to accelerate the voyage of another if nothing more is needed than the acceleration of its progress.” Beyond the acceleration of ships, the acquisition of a towing service is a common practice for towing barges, drilling oil platforms, floating shipyards, etc. In addition to the development of maritime transport and oil drilling activities, many towing service providers are now being created. In the towing contract, the towed vessel must be in a normal, safe condition; During recovery, the recovered vessel or other maritime real estate is usually threatened. The master is generally allowed to conclude towing contracts which would bind his contracting entities and towing service providers. However, there are some exceptional cases in the specific area of towing, Steamship Co. v. Anderson, It is alleged that a master cannot bind his owners to any towing contract he deems appropriate; it is binding on them only if the circumstances are reasonable and their conditions are reasonable. The need for success is a feature of recovery, but not towing.
This is a necessary element of a right to recovery, as recovery premiums cannot exceed the value of the recovered vessel or the immovable property rescued. The right to pay for towing depends on the design of the contract and not on the success of the business. Any right to a ship shall fall within the jurisdiction of the Admiralty Tribunal. The applicant may benefit from the particularity of the admiralty court, it is the right to bring an action in rem, which means that the applicant may bring an action against the ship itself. However, towing acts may be “true” acts capable of acting in Rem. A true abort action is one that can be brought against the ship, regardless of the owner, and this type of remedy therefore survives a change of ownership once the remedy is formed, even if the new owner may have purchased in good faith without notification of the claim. Genuine official acts of action include cases where there is a maritime right of pledge on the ship for the amount claimed, but the carriage does not confer that right. The master of an ordinary ship carrying cargo or performing a charter must very carefully engage his owners in the performance of a towing contract. The interests of freight owners or other parties to the contract of carriage shall be taken into account. Whenever a tug tows a contract vessel, the initial voyage is interrupted, which means that it is an infringement on the part of the shipowner, unless this is permitted by the conditions of the bill of lading or the party to the charter. The contracting entities of the master are entitled either to authorise his master to conclude a towing contract or to restrict his powers to a certain extent.
However, the Admiralty Tribunal retains appropriate general jurisdiction to invalidate certain towing agreements and refuse to enforce them if either party considers this to be a grave injustice. . . .
