One of the primary concerns of admiralty law is uniformity and predictability. See American Dredging Co. v. Miller, 510 U.S. 443, 450-51, 114 S.Ct. 981, 986-87, 127 L.Ed.2d 285 (1994) (noting the constitutionally based principle that admiralty law should be 'a system of law coextensive with, and operating uniformly in, the whole country') (quoting The Lottawanna, 88 U.S. (21 Wall.) 558, 575, 22 L.Ed. 654 (1900)); Coats v. Penrod Drilling Corp., 61 F.3d 1113, 1137 (5th Cir.1995) ('Uniformity and predictability are important in admiralty....'). To avoid the creation of multiple and conflicting rules of decision in admiralty, the Fourth Circuit has stated that, 'Absent reason to do otherwise, we prefer to adopt rules in admiralty that accord with, rather than diverge from, standard commercial practice.' Finora Co. v. Amitie Shipping, Ltd., 54 F.3d 209, 213-14 (4th Cir.1995).
