AN ACT TO AMEND CHAPTER 35 OF THE REVISED CODE OF DELAWARE, 1935, ENTITLED, "BOARD OF PILOT COMMISSIONERS", BY INCREASING THE RATE FOR THE PILOTAGE OF VESSELS DRAWING OVER TWELVE FEET OF WATER.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware in General Assembly met:

Section 1. That 1083. Sec. 19. of Chapter 35, Revised Code of Delaware, 1935, be amended by striking out all of said section and enacting in lieu thereof a new section 1083. Sec. 19., as follows, to-wit:

1083. Sec. 19. Pilotage Rates:--The rates of pilotage for conducting a vessel from the Capes of the Delaware to the City of Philadelphia or other place on the River Delaware, and from the City of Philadelphia or other place on the River Delaware, to the Capes of the Delaware, in either case shall be for every half foot of water which a vessel shall draw under, up to and including twelve feet, the sum of two dollars per half foot and for every vessel drawing over twelve feet, the sum of three dollars per half foot of water. A deduction of ten per centum from the said rates shall be made when an inward-bound vessel is first spoken by the pilot inside of a straight line drawn from Cape Henlopen Light to Cape May Light. Every such vessel bound to the Breakwater for orders shall pay pilotage fees as follows: a sum equal to one-half of the inward rates of pilotage to the Port of Philadelphia, and the same fees when outward bound from the Breakwater.

Approved February 4, 1947.
