      EXTENSION OF ADMIRALTY AND MARITIME JURISDIC-
      TION; LIBEL IN REM OR IN PERSONAM; EXCLUSIVE
      REMEDY; WAITING PERIOD (46 App. U.S.C. 740 (1996)). The
      admiralty and maritime jurisdiction of the United States shall extend to
      and include all cases of damage or injury, to person or property, caused
      by a vessel on navigable water, notwithstanding that such damage or
      injury be done or consummated on land. In any such case suit may be
      brought in rem or in personam according to the principles of law and
      the rules of practice obtaining in cases where the injury or damage has
      been done and consummated on navigable water: Provided, That as to
      any suit against the United States for damage or injury done or consum-
      mated on land by a vessel on navigable waters, the Public Vessels Act
      or Suits in Admiralty Act, as appropriate, shall constitute the
      exclusive
      remedy for all causes of action arising after the date of the passage of
      this Act and for all causes of action where suit has not been hitherto
      filed under the Federal Tort Claims Act: Provided further, That no suit
      shall be filed against the United States until there shall have expired
      a
      period of six months after the claim has been presented in writing to
      the
      Federal agency owning or operating the vessel causing the injury or
      damage.

      I can verify this word "consummated" is in North Carolina code. Where
      it is explained, I know not.

      As to what "on navigable waters" means, I have no authorities.

      Perhaps someone can enlighten.
