First, since 2002, all of the standard forms of contract considered in this work (with the exception of the UK Standard Conditions) have been the subject of revision to a greater or lesser extent. As part of BIMCOs periodic review of its forms, the “Supplytime 89” form was revised and a revised version issued as “Supplytime 2005”. This is the standard form contract which is, perhaps, the linchpin of very many of the contractual arrangements in the offshore industry. The BIMCO towage forms, “Towcon” and “Towhire”, first issued in 1985, were next to be reviewed.

These issues too were also touched on in my judgment in The Herdentor but remain for further argument and decision. It is perhaps surprising that, although it was apparently the first case decided by the Court on the BIMCO knock-for-knock clause and many interesting questions were raised in it as to the application and working of the clause, the decision was never reported. It certainly does not appear to have prevented it from being cited and applied. That may now be made easier by the fact that it has now been irrevocably disinterred and appears as an appendix to the current edition.
