(1) The hirer of a
crane shall not permit the crane fall to be used for the purpose of dragging
out cargo, unless a pennant is attached so as to avoid the fall being drawn
across any part of a vessel’s structure.
(2) The hirer is
responsible for, and shall indemnify the Port Authority against, any loss or
damage that may be caused to, or be suffered by, the Port Authority, by reason
of any wrongful or negligent act or any omission, or incorrect information
made or given by the hirer or anyone acting on his behalf, including all
damage done to the cranes or the gear or purchases used in connection
therewith, while being used by them, reasonable wear and tear excepted.
