U.S. Supreme Court

Hartranft v. Du Pont, 118 U.S. 223 (1866)

Hartranft v. Du Pont

Submitted April 19, 1886

Decided May 10, 1886

118 U.S. 223


The Repauno was a wooden vessel 37 feet in length at the water line, 8 feet beam, 3 feet 9 inches depth of hold, 2 feet 1 inch draught, with a small engine and boiler; could carry 25 persons in smooth water, and was used to transport her owner and superintendent, and occasionally some workmen across the Delaware between Thompson's Point and Chester. Held that although it is sometimes difficult to draw the line between vessels so small and insignificant that they do not come within the inspection laws and larger vessels which do come within them, the Repauno was liable to inspection under the statutes of the United States.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
