The vessel was caught in a storm and, despite all the efforts of the crew, the cargo holds were filled with water rendering the wheat completely inappropriate for human consumption. Upon arrival of the vessel at Damietta B is furious and decides not to claim the insurance but to refuse the cargo and to reject payment.
