collision of vessels
The conning together with force of two navigating vessels. 2 Am J2d Adm § 56; the impact of a vessel with another vessel or other floating object. 29A Am J Rev ed Ins § 1317;; a peril of the sea within the meaning of at marine insurance policy. 29A Am J Rev ed Ins § 1316. Within the meaning of a marine insurance policy, a ship is in collision when the circumstances can be fairly described, wilhin the ordinary use of language, its amounting to is collision. An impairment of seaworthiness or a vessel caused by contact with another is not essential to the collision, and vessels may be in collision, although one is temporarily aground, at anchor, or at her dock. In this country the term has in time and by common usage been extended to include the impact of the vessel with other floating objects. But the English cases hold that the term applies only to the striking together of two navigable vessels, and that it does not apply to to case where a vessel runs into a sunken object, or a stationary or permanent obstruction; and in the United States it has been held no collision where a vessel strikes some sunken obstruction in the water. 29A Am J Rev ed Ins § 1317.
