M) The definition of ‘wing-in-ground (WIG) craft’ was added as an amendment to Rule 3 by the 22nd IMO Assembly in 2001. WIG craft are not to be considered as seaplanes or non-displacement craft. For the pufpose of WIG craft there is a new provision included in Rule 18(f), (see page 116). WIG craft look like aircraft, but are not aircraft and therefore the definition of ‘seaplane’ is not applicable to WIG craft. WIG craft are classified as dynamical support craft. The weight of a WIG craft in operation is mainly supported by a dynamic air cushion, which by engine thrust is created between the lower surface of an air foil and the water surface.

The speed of the I? Culund had been reduced from 11 knots to about 4 to 5 knots by an accident to the machinery. The Glamorgun, seeing the red lights but not the side lights of the F! Caland, steamed towards her to offer assistance and collided with her. Lord Herschel, the Lord Chancellor, said: Under these circumstances I cannot hold that, owing to the disablement of the machinery, the risk of its ceasing to work was so imminent that the vessel can be said not to have been under command within the meaning of the Rule.

Sir Jocelyn Simon, President of the Court) Within a distance appropriate t o . . The term ‘moderate speed’ was previously interpreted as meaning a speed which would enable a vessel to be stopped within half the range of visibility. Glorious-Florida There is an excellent rule that we sometimes come across in motor collision cases and which we act on - that if there is a difficulty in-seeing you ought to be ready to stop within the limits of visibility; and obviously a boat that goes on fast in dense fog will not be able to stop within the limits of visibility.
