The Oinoussian Friendship: 1987

A claim was made for physical damage to a vessel.
Held: Where the owners take advantage of the fact that repairs are being done by having owners’ work done at the same time, and (1) the owners’ work does not extend the cost of or period of repairs, and (2) the owners’ work was not immediately necessary so that the vessel would have been out of commission irrespective of the wrongful damage, in which case the owner cannot recover at all save insofar as the wrongful damage repairs add to the period of detention, there is no principle of law that requires apportionment by way of owners’ contribution to the outlay.
