Dear Sir:
With reference to your letter of the 26th.
instant regarding voyage of the "Skagerak from Vancouver to
Skagway and return during the period Kay 17th, 1954 to June
8tii, 1954 inclusive.
It is observed that a charge of $118.80 is shown
for meals served by vessel to Gaptain K. Perry and Captain A.
HcKinnon. On the statement submitted b the owners of the vessel
it is stated that meals were supplied for 20 days at the rate of
$3.00 per day per Master. I am therefore unable to understand
why a further charge of $55,50 is being made for meals supplied
to Captain Perry and Captain HcKinnon at Skagway. As they
received meals ashore in Skagway, the vessel should not have
charged for meals supplied for 20 days.
Why was it necessary for them to obtain a room
ashore? As they were supplied with a room on the vessel, it
would appear to me they could have used the same room while the
vessel was in port at Skagway. FORM IOICsE

e have since received White Pass and Yukon
Route bill No. 483 which, shows the stevedoring charge at
Skagway as $1,318 as the June proportion. As the charge
is now definitely known, and is greater then was estimated,
it is understood that this will reduce our proportion of the
profit.
Regarding the charge of $822.15 covering
insurance for longshoremen employed at. Skagway. Your remarks
with respect to this particular charge have been noted.
Would it not be better to delete that amount from the expenses
and should it later be found that your Company will have to
bear the charge, then accordingly bill our Company for 50$
of the actual amount.
Regarding charge of $500 covering P. and I.
Insurance. I would appreciate your advising as to how this
charge is arrived at.
The cost of repairing the ship's hold in the
amount of $692.91 appears to me to be rather high. That
amount includes a charge of $43. 5 for three pieces of FORM IOl£S*

plywood. What was the plywood used for? My Assistant
and Barine Traffic and Safety Supervisor when in Skagway
while this vessel was loading, were informed that the
gratings which were damaged were in a state of disrepair
prior to the actual loading. It would appear that the
ship owners are endeavouring to have the old boards
replaced with brand new ones at the expense of the Union
Steamships and the Canadian Pacific.
In order that payment can be ejspedited to your
Company, it is understood that the profit shown in your
statement is subject to slight adjustments. On that
understanding I an arranging settlement of your account
in order to expedite payment. In the meantime, however,
I would appreciate your advising regarding the various
items mentioned.

Dear Sir:
With reference to conversation with my Assistant last
week regarding charter of the m.v. "Skagerak".
It is noted that this vessel will be available in Vancouver
to conmtence loading on May 18th.
Arrangements have now been made to have the vessel depart
from Vancouver for Skagway on May 20ch, a day earlier than the
scheduled departure date of the "Cassiar".
It is noted that the vessel's agents will accept the
charter rate of $1,000. a day in U.S. currency. While it is
understood that you will have one of your regular masters travel
with the vessel to act as a pilot and also as supercargo, have
you been able to arrange, as was suggested by my Assistant to
Mr. M.A. Benson, your Traffic Manager, to have the charter made
out to specify the number of days for which rent can be charged
from the date leaving Vancouver until arrival Skagway and the \ CANADIAN   PACIFIC   RAILWAY   COMPANY

same for the return movement?
It is understood that the Canadian Pacific will
carry the insurance on their portion of the pallet boards to
be carried on the "Skagerak" during the voyage in question.
No doubt you will arrange to carry insurance coverage on your
proportion. In addition, I would appreciate your arranging to
see that insurance is carried for the 50$ of the boards handled
on the southbound movement which are in the pool and which belong
to the White Pass and Yukon Route. I would appreciate your
confirming that this has been done. If you carry any lift trucks
it is understood you will arrange your own insurance.
It is also understood that the billing will be on
Canadian Pacific forms and that the entire revenue will be
applied to the joint operation.
If after the expenses of the operation which include
all longshore costs, charter of the vessel, etc., there is a

sitfb&nt to Manager. MEMORANDUM
lIpON STEAMSHIPS LIMITED VANCOUVER, B.C., 40th April,   1954.
Re: a.s. SKAGFRAK
Motor ship SKAGERAK (registered Oslo) offered firm at $1,000.00 U.S. per
day, plus bunkers and extra insurance, if any.
On the basis of present cargo, estimated: Northbound - General   $20,000.00
Southbound - Concentrates 40.000.00
Total:   $60,000.00
The operating expenses are estimated as follows:
Charter hire $ 23,000.00
Port charges - both ends, inc. pilotage 3,000.00
Bunkers 6,500.00
Miscellaneous 1,000.00
Loading and Discharging - general 3,000.00
Loading - concentrates 7,500.00
Discharging • concentrates 4,000.00
Overtime - Skagway 2.500.00
$ 50,500.00
This does not provide for extra insurance which will apply outside the Norwegian
pdicy limits. Marsh McLennan advise that the copy of policy limits in their
possession indicates that all Alaska ports are included at no extra premium.
However, the value to be insured if we are liable for extra insurance is £337,500.
Mr. White has confirmed the cargo estimate furnished by Mr. Bension
of 1,000 tons general cargo and 5,000 tons minimum concentrates and, in view of
the ship's capacity being appeoximately 8,000 tons, expects that Skagway can
furnish at least 6,000 tons concentrates.
Mr. Tyson agrees to negotiations proceeding on this basis and, if
possible, conclusion of the (Starter on a joint basis, charter to be in the name
of Union Steamships Limited.
