  5. Suppose insurance is arranged on the 10th of a month, the date of dispatch of goods is represented as the 12th of that month and goods are dispatched on the 14th of the same month. This is not ‘material fact’. However, if the actual date of dispatch is past , say, 1st of that month, it is ‘material fact’.

  13. A ship is deemed to be seaworthy when she is reasonably fit in all respects to encounter the ordinary perils of the seas of the adventure insured.
  14. In a cargo policy, there is no implied warranty that the goods insured are seaworthy.
  15. In cargo policies, warranty of seaworthiness is relaxed insofar as it is applicable only when the exporter is aware about the unseaworthiness at the time of shipment.
  16. Marine insurance contracts cannot be used to protect illegal voyages or adventures and such policies are void.
  17. Breach of warranty makes the contract voidable at the option of the insurer.
  18. Sections 6 to 17 of Marine Insurance Act, 1963 deal with the subject of insurable interest.
  19. when goods are purchased on FOB terms, the purchaser has no insurable interest in such goods during their transit from the seller’s factory to the vessel.
  1. A “defeasible interest” is one which can be brought to an end during the currency of the insurance by the occurrence of some event other than maritime perils.
  2. A seller has an insurable interest in the goods up to the time the title passes to the buyer. This passing of title may occur after commencement of the voyage, and when this occurs, the seller’s interest ceases. This is called defeasible interest.
  3. A “contingent interest” is an interest that attaches during the currency of a voyage on the happening of a contingency.
