Dictionary of Nautical Terms

  1. salvage

    Originally meant the thing or goods saved from wreck, fire, or enemies. It now signifies an allowance made to those by whose means the ship or goods have been saved. These cases, when fairly made out, are received with the most liberal encouragement. Goods of British subjects, retaken from the enemy, are restored to the owners, paying for salvage one eighth of the value to ships-of-war; one-sixth to privateers. When a ship is in danger of being stranded, justices of the peace are to command the constables to assemble as many persons as are necessary to preserve it; and on its being thus preserved, the persons assisting therein shall, in thirty days after, be paid a reasonable reward for the salvage; otherwise the ship or goods shall remain in the custody of the officers of the customs as a security for the same.

Examples of salvage in a Sentence

  1. Brendon Todd:

World number two Jordan Spieth, the highest-ranked player in the field, recovered from a slow start to card a 68 while Tiger Woods scrambled on Tiger Woods back nine with three late birdies to salvage Tiger Woods round.

  2. Jamela Dunbar:

  3. Robert Myers:

    Sarkis Izmirlian said in a statement. According to the bankruptcy filing, Baha Mar Ltd sent teams to Beijing three times over the last two months in attempts to salvage an agreement. The bankruptcy filing represents the latest setback for China State Construction, which was banned from participating in World Bank-funded projects for six years starting in January 2009, after the multilateral agency found that China State Construction had colluded in rigging bids for a Philippines road project. According to the bankruptcy filing, China State Construction claims that Baha Mar Ltd has withheld $ 140 million in funds it is owed, an assertion Baha Mar disputes. The Export-Import Bank of China, according to the filing, has refused to release approximately $ 112 million remaining in the $ 2.45 billion loan China Export-Import Bank extended for the project. The Bahamas, a country of about 353,000 people, has an economy heavily dependent on tourism, and Baha Mar Ltd was expected to create 5,000 new jobs when fully operational. The resort's projected annual payroll of $ 130 million would represent about 12 percent of the country's gross domestic product, the developer said in its court filing. It's an absolute disaster.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    There is a very subtle, diffused and fine line of demarkation that separates the two worlds of a Reader and a Writer. In my view, the Reader crosses that fine line and becomes the Writer, either when she/he does not find the right material of quality to read, or when they realize that their vivid and deep experiences will enrich and uplift the lterature from status quo. It's always good to share express yourself, and share your experiences and thoughts as the Writer, no matter how trivial those may be in the eyes of others. It's a wonderful way to return something precious to the society, retain the valuable information, and salvage the most valuable in this most uncertain world.
