U.S. Supreme Court

Work v. Leathers, 97 U.S. 379 (1878)

Work v. Leathers

97 U.S. 379


1. Where the owner of a vessel charters her, there arises, unless the contrary be shown, an implied contract on his part that she is seaworthy and suitable for the service in which she is to be employed. He is therefore bound, unless prevented by the perils of the sea or unavoidable accident, to keep her in proper repair, and is not excused for any defects known or unknown.

2. A defect in the vessel, which is developed without any apparent cause, is presumed to have existed when the service began.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
