Sail on the same tack HsuChiCheng
There is no term more than “general average” of maritime law suitable to expound “sail on the same tack”.
Accidence will happen. Who can guarantee the ship will not run into accidence while sailing on the sea? For instance, to run into tsunami, to meet with the rainstorm, to bump against the submerged reefs…
The ship is flood now.
The ship is sinking into the bottom of the sea now.
The ship is inclining now.
The ship is bogged down to live alone nobody else can help now.
The faces are lost in misery now and great panic now.
How will we do now?
Don’t worry! Don’t in great panic! It will do worst if you worry and in great panic.
You ought to try to repair.
The flood is owed to the bottom of the ship is broken, cracked, leaked. It’s difficult to repair, there is nothing to be done. It can’t to block. –Where to get tool and material temporarily on the sea? Lack of tool and material, how can you block it? How can you repair it?
SOS, SOS…Who said the message for help doesn’t send? It sent early, and sends incessantly, and sending till now; but there are not help to comes yet.
The ship is bogged down to live alone nobody else can help still…
The ship is flooding slowly, and sinking slowly, is more inclining now…
Could it be said that we see with open our eyes the ship be sunk down? Enclosed the person whole the ship, the worry and in misery and great panic whole the ship?
Hurry to reduce the weight of the bear of the ship! The bear of the weight of the ship is reduced, don’t it be float on the surface of the sea, will not sink, and wait for help?
All right! It’s it!
And then, try to throw the article!
But throw whose thing?
“No! Why not throw yours?”
Whose thing is unwilling to throw, so that, is it the best to throw whose? Could it be said that don’t to throw the article, and throw person?
What can it be? Person is more value than the article, of course throw the article, how can we throw person?
All right! We follow this principle! The standard is the value and the weight, the worst and the most weight throw first, the next value and next weight to throw next, and so on, the most value and the thinnest throw the last.
However, is it ought to suffer and lost the person who posses the most the article of worst and most weight? Who prescribes it? Who has this great power to prescribe it?
No. After ashore safely, to count the sum of the lost, all will share. This is general average. This is sail on the same tack. This is the best means for reserve. If not, all are unwilling to throw the article, afraid of lost or be harm, then all will lost his life.
Then, we all had better to sail on the same tack! On the sea, on any matter…@
