Where the voyage-charterer fails to tender the stipulated cargo within a reasonable time1, the shipowner is not bound to wait any longer2, and a subsequent tender is inoperative3. The shipowner must, however, wait a reasonable time; he cannot depart earlier unless the charterer has repudiated the contract and he has accepted the repudiation4. Where there is a demurrage clause with a fixed number of days, the shipowner must wait for those days; if demurrage is provided for generally with no fixed number of days, he must wait for a reasonable time in the circumstances5 or until earlier repudiation6.
