Argued December 6, 1886

Decided January 10, 1887

119 U.S. 625

Syllabus

A fixed structure contrived for the purpose of taking ships out of the water in order to repair them, and for no other purpose, consisting of a large oblong box with a flat bottom and perpendicular sides, with no means of propulsion either by wind, steam, or otherwise, and not designed for navigation, but only as a floating dry dock, permanently moored, is not a subject of salvage service.

This was an appeal from a decree of the circuit court dismissing a libel for salvage for want of jurisdiction. The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
