which the owner borrows money to enable him to fit out the ship, or to
purchase a cargo, for a voyage proposed: and he pledges the keel or bottom
of the ship, pars pro toto, as a security for the repayment; and it is

money but if the ship should arrive in safety, then he shall receive back
his principal, and also the interest agreed upon, which is generally called
