Rule 50 Damage to Member's own property

Notwithstanding the terms of Rule 2.4(b):

a) if the Ship causes damage to property, other than cargo, belonging wholly or in part to the Member, the Member shall be entitled to recover from the Association under Rules 36 (collision with other ships), 37 (damage to fixed or floating object) or 39 (loss of or damage to property) and 40 (b) (liabilities for obstruction) as if the property belonged to a third party; and

b) in the event that any cargo lost or damaged on board the Ship shall be the property of the Member, the Member shall be entitled to recover from the Association under Rule 34 (cargo liability) the same amount as would have been recoverable from him if the cargo had belonged to a third party and that third party had concluded a contract of carriage with the Member on terms incorporating the Hague-Visby Rules.
