There was a boating accident off the coast of Nantucket, Massachusetts on July 30, 2022.  The cruise ship Norwegian Pearl collided with the fishing boat Gabby G.  The cruise ship had departed Boston for a week long cruise the day before the incident occurred.  The fishing boat was towed to New Bedford for repairs.  It is unclear if anyone was injured as a result of the collision.

There have been a number of recent incidents involving vessels.  A pilot was killed during a boarding accident involving the product tanker ALHENA on July 18, 2022.  A fire broke out on a small boat on Lake Lanier in Georgia on July 24, 2022.  There was an explosion on the tug boat BLUE DRAGON on July 23, 2022.  There was a fire on board the cargo ship NOVA on July 26, 2022.  There was a boating accident in Ashtabula, Ohio on July 26, 2022.  A sail boat capsized near Shamrock Cove, Texas on July 28, 2022.  A 30-foot boat caught fire at the Cove Marina in Norwalk, Connecticut on July 29, 2022.

It can be dangerous to work in any industry when safety considerations are not taken seriously.  This is especially so when working on a large ship. Safe maritime companies must ensure that their ships do not put the lives of their crew members at risk.  Safe maritime companies must be proactive and take preventative measures, including regular maintenance and repairs, as well as ensuring its crew members are adequately trained.
