The issues in this case were whether an arrest warrant extends to property taken off a vessel prior to arrest and whether repairs to a vessel under arrest paid for by the vessel’s owner form part of the arresting party’s security. The case concerned machinery owned by the Plaintiff that had been lost overboard from the "Palaquin" during alleged heavy weather. The heavy weather also damaged the engine of the "Palaquin". Subsequent to the accident, but before action had been commenced, the engine was removed from the "Palaquin" for repair and the electronics were removed for safekeeping. A Warrant for Arrest was served on the vessel after the removal of these items. The Plaintiff brought a motion before the Prothonotary for an order that the arrest warrant extended to the engine and electronics removed from the vessel. The Court held that the arrest warrant extended to items that had been removed from the ship before the arrest. A second aspect of the case concerned whether the increase in the value of the ship as a consequence of the engine repairs would benefit the Plaintiff. The Court held that repairs done and paid for by the owner subsequent to the accident, but before arrest, increased the value of the res to the benefit of the arresting party. However, the value of repairs done and paid for by the owner after the arrest did not form part of the arresting party’s security.
