(The actual cost of labor of docking and un-
docking, plus the prevailing division surcharge,
the cost of unusual material used and $150 for the
use of the dry dock) plus 10 per cent, The Panama
Canal surcharge.

Note— The $150 per day for the use of the Bal-
boa dry dock covers the cost of power and labor
for operating the dry dock pumps anjd the de-
preciation and maintenance of the pumping plant
and all other dry dock structures and equipment
except the 50-ton dry dock crane, for which an ad-
ditional charge is made at rates fixed under Item
9 of this tariff or supplements thereto.
Docked with other vessels:
At Balboa—

Docking days — When a vessel is docked with one
or more other vessels, the minimum charge for
docking days is the actual cost for docking and un-
docking as shown above, except that the $150 per
day for use of dry dock will be equally divided on
the basis of the number of small vessels docked,
regardless of their tonnage or valuation.

Lay days — The regular rate per ton for lay days
will apply except in those instances in which the
ship's tonnage multiplified by the regular rate fails
to cover the ship's pro rata share of the $150 flat
rate for the use of the dry dock.

amount which at regular rates would equal less
than the minimum rate above, is docked with one
or more vessels :

12. The rates for docking and undocking cover the use of floats, staging horses,

stage planking, staging lines, trestles, scrapers, brushes, etc., for use in con-
nection with cleaning and painting the vessel or making repairs. The cost of
work performed in rigging staging, etc., except as described in the following
paragraph will be charged for at the regular rates.

13. No charge will be made for the services of dry dock cranes in connection with

preparing the dock, the handling and arranging of ordinary blocks, shoring,
gangways, or brows or similar work in connection with the actual docking or
undocking, or for handling trestles and staging in connection with cleaning
and painting underwater bodies of vessels.

14. Services of the dry dock crane not covered in the foregoing paragraph will be

charged for at the regular rate per hour or fraction thereof provided for in Item
9 of this tariff or supplements thereto.

15. Shores, blocks, staging, or other dock equipment damaged or destroyed by the

ship or her crew, except as a result of fair wear and tear, will be charged at

during the fiscal year 1921. In the tonnage figures here shown, Pan-
ama Canal net tonnage is given on colliers, tankers, transports, cargo
and supply ships, and displacement tonnage on battleships, cruisers'
