    What is harborage?

    Harborage is the act of taking shelter or refuge in a port, harbor, or other anchorage for the purpose of rendering assistance to a ship or aircraft in distress.

    In general, the term applies to vessels providing temporary shelter to any ship or aircraft that limps in, is in danger of foundering, or is otherwise in need of assistance. Harborage is not limited to professional mariners - anyone in need of refuge can find it in a harbor.

    In a commercial setting, harborage can be valuable to a vessel seeking to preserve cargo, delay competition, or avoid a storm.
