The owner and the master will be liable on conviction on indictment, to a fine, and on summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding the statutory maximum (£5, 000) and to such additional fine as the court thinks fit to impose, having regard to the extent to which the earning capacity of the ship was increased by reason of the contravention, but subject to a maximum amount of £1, 000 for each complete centimeter of overloading, I. e. £5, 000 plus £1, 000 per centimeter.
