- Mobility of Berthed Vessels
All vessels berthed at the LFC shall at all times be manned by a deck officer and engine room personnel competent to move the vessel when needed. A vessel that cannot be moved to other berthing area because of the absence of competent officer shall be towed outside of the harbor basin on the account of the vessel captain, or the owner of the vessel or its shipping Agent.
Vessels needing repair shall first secure a permit to repair from the LFC office before commencement of repairs. Due to lack of berthing area for repair purposes, only minor repairs which could be completed within 48 hours shall be allowed.
In case a vessel sinks within the harbor basin due to causes beyond the control of the owner/operator, the owner/operator or the shipping agent shall re-float and tow away the vessel outside the harbor basin within 15 calendar days reckoned from the date of receipt of the notice after which the LFC management shall salvage the vessel at the account of the owner or its shipping agents.
