Strict Liability And Its Impact On Marine Field Discussed By SNAME No. Calif. Section

Earle V. Maynard presented a brief paper entitled "Strict Liability, Its Impact on the Marine Field" at a recent dinner meeting of the Northern California Section of The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers.

Mr. Maynard outlined the potential problems over recent court interpretations of the concept of "strict liability." He concluded that since the marine market was a peripheral area of interest by the insurance community that extremely high premiums or unavailability for "product" type coverage may be anticipated.

Additionally, at this meeting, incoming officers were presented as follows: Murray Montgomery, Matson Navigation, was named chairman; David Pritchard, Chevron Shipping, is vice chairman; Roger Kline, David J. Seymour Ltd., was named secretarytreasurer; Peter Fisher, Matson Navigation, is Papers Committee chairman, and King- Tau Liu, Herbert Engineering, was elected to the Executive Committee.
