In the wrongful death case of Flueras v. Royal Caribbean Cruises, decided by the Third District Court of Appeals September 28, 2011, the Third District Court of Appeals reiterated the rule regarding unseaworthiness: A vessel's condition of unseaworthiness may arise from any number of circumstances: Her gear might be defective, her appurtenances in disrepair, her crew unfit. The number of men assigned to perform a shipboard task might be insufficient. The method of loading her cargo, or the manner of its stowage, might be improper. For any of these reasons, or others, a vessel might not be reasonably fit for her intended service.
