REPORT and Decision of the Marine Board of New South Wales in the matter of the collision between the "VAILELE," Official No. 62,138, and "BARRABOOL," Official No. 64,795.

An inquiry was held by the Board into the circumstances attending this collision, and they ascertained that the "Vailele" is a brigantine of 158 tons, owned by Mr. Isaac Chapman, residing in Sydney, and insured.

She was inward bound on the morning of Christmas Day, virtually becalmed, and drifting up Darling Harbour with the flood tide, when she was run into by the steamer "Barrabool" and seriously damaged; she has since been slipped for repairs. No one was lost or hurt by the casualty.

The "Barrabool" is an iron screw passenger steamer of 588 tons belonging to Messrs. Howard Smith and Sons. She was outward bound with passengers and cargo, and received no injury.

The Board reported that the said collision was caused by the wrongful act or default of William Hammer, the master of the "Barrabool," in committing a breach of the 17th article of the Steering and Sailing Rules by not keeping out of the way of the sailing hip.

Taking all the circumstan es of the case into consideration, the Board is of opinion that a reprimand will meet its merits. The said William Hammer is, therefore, reprimanded accordingly.





Sydney, 14th January 1895.

81564—225. 110.—3/95. Wt. 60. E. & S.
