There have been a number of recent incidents involving vessels.  There was a vessel collision between the Dominic S and the Marilyn M in the early morning of February 23, 2022.  The bulk carrier NAMURA QUEEN was hit by a missile on February 25, 2022.  There was an incident on the bulk carrier Richard Oldendorff on February 25, 2022.  The bulk carrier BANGLAR SAMRIDDHI was hit by a missile on March 2, 2022.

A recreational boating accident can be the result of many factors, including: human error, weather conditions, equipment failure, poor maintenance practices, waves caused by other vessels, or a lack of equipment.  An incident can often be a result of a combination of the above factors.  Ultimately though, many of these incidents are preventable.
