Good seamanship is the exercise of that skill, care and nerve which are ordinarily to be found in competent
mariners. Poor or bad seamanship is the opposite, ie a decision or step that no ordinarily competent mariner
acting with care would have taken or an omission to act as any such mariner would have acted. Whether there
has been good or bad seamanship is a question of fact to be decided upon consideration of all the
circumstances as they stood at the time .
