MINREPCON 2018 is a standard contract for minor afloat repairs at a commercial berth or anchorage. It is not meant to be an alternative to REPAIRCON 2018, which is the recommended contract for contracting with ship repairers or major sub-contractors. MINREPCON 2018 is intended to be used by shipowners to conclude written contracts with individuals or sub-contractors performing minor repairs which would normally be reluctant to read or sign a longer contract, such as REPAIRCON 2018. It should be noted that MINREPCON 2018 is a short form and does not include many of the limitations and protections included in REPAIRCON 2018. The latest edition of this contract is MINREPCON 2018, issued in 2018.
