This appeal presents the question whether the Tug Captain Paul was solely at fault in its collision with a small lugger, the Miss Mazur. The findings of fact and conclusions of law by the District Court, reported at 216 F.Supp. 665 (1963), are not clearly erroneous and adequately support the judgment. Therefore, the judgment is affirmed.
