 MSC Diego  (Container Ship)

Boater missing after pleasure craft struck moored container ship
A boater was presumed missing on the St. Lawrence River after a pleasure craft struck the "MSC Diego" which was moored at the Termont Maisonneuve Container Terminal in Montréal near the Louis-Hippolyte-La Fontaine tunnel on July 26, 2016, at 10 p.m. There may have been an individual on the boat according to a witness, a crane operator. But no one has been reported missing and a search with helicopters, surface craft and divers has not found any sign of the boat's occupants. Police were looking into a variety of causes for the incident, including the possibility of suicide. The 20-foot speedboat appeared to have struck the "MSC Diego" at high speed, and the small craft’s bow was badly damaged so the boat sank after the impact. The whole front end was found floating around before it sank. Helicopters of the Sûreté of Québec and a Hercules aircraft of the Canadian Air Force flew over the river in the evening. The Canadian Coast Guard, SIM firefighters and their colleagues from Longueuil as well as SPVM police officers participated in the search which included six boats which crossed the river. But only a few fragments of the boat, a life jacket and a portable toilet were found. The search was halted on July 27 at 4 p.m. but was expected to resume on July 28. It will include a larger stretch of the St. Lawrence, as the current may have carried objects from the scene for miles downriver. Divers equipped with sonar spotted parts of the boat, but no trace of the missing, presumably the driver of the boat, which could be aged between 20 and 30 years. The "MSC Diego" remained moored at its berth on the river. French reports with photos and video: www.tvanouvelles.... journalmetro.com/...

 Northern Ranger  (Other)

Ferry operating at reduced capacity due to lifeboat corrosion
The "Northern Ranger" has been operating at reduced capacity along the coast of Labrador since July 11, 2016, because it has fewer lifeboats than usual. The ship usually has inflatable life rafts plus two uncovered lifeboats and two covered lifeboats. The uncovered ones and their launching equipment have corroded. With all its lifeboats, the ferry and freight ship can take 131 passengers. That number has now been reduced to 83. During the next few weeks the issue was to be resolved.
