Tanker saved survivors of Hải Thành 26-sinking
On March 28, 2017, at midnight the Vietnamese flagged cargo m/v "Hải Thành 26", 1599 gt (IMO: 9611096), sank following a collision in the Vung Tau Sea, 44 nautical miles east of Vung Tau City in southern coastal Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province. The MRCC immediately asked the "Petrolimex 14" which was sailing some five nautical miles near the accident site, to proceed to the area. At the same time, the centre also informed the two other vessels "SAR 413" and "SAR 272"to support the SAR operation. The "Petrolimex 14" found a breeches-buoy with two crew members of the sunken ship on board. Both were rescued. One of them told that the other crew members of the "Hải Thành 26" had drifted away on another breeches-buoy. The "Petrolimex 14" and two vessels continued their search around until they found another breaches-buoy at about 8.10 a.m., but there was no one on board. The "Hải Thành 26" sank at midnight after colliding with a yet unidentifid ship. The ship with 11 crewmen and clinker on board was sailing from northern Hai Phong City to southern Can Tho City.

Barge towed by Evans McKeil sank in Picton Bay
On March 24, 2017, the 27-m-barge "Pitts Carillon" of the Galcon Marine sank in Picton Bay, Prince Edward County, about 60 kilometers SW of Kingston, which had been towed to the local terminal by the "Evans McKeil" the previous evening, coming from Toronto. In the morning the crew of the tug noticed the barge listing to one side and set up a pump in an attempt to right it. Marine Officials in Prince Edward County were reassuring residents that the partially submerged barge posed little risk to the environment. The bow of the "Pitts Carillon" was resting in shallow waters after it began taking on water. The McKeil Marine had chartered the vessel and was now taking responsibility for the salvage operation. The barge's stern remained afloat. The barge was stable, and the company developed a recovery plan which was reviewed by the Coast Guard and Transport Canada. They have assembled a team of experts and taken all necessary precautions to ensure utmost safety throughout the operation. The barge contained about 1,200 litres of diesel fuel and 100 litres of hydraulic fluid. The fuel tanks remained intact, but the company deployed a pollution boom around the barge as a precaution. Divers hired to inspect the barge have confirmed no pollutants have contaminated the bay. The county has taken all necessary precautions to protect the local drinking water system, and said a sufficient supply of drinking water exists in municipal reservoirs in the event that pollution was detected.

 Sewol  (Passenger ship)

Human remains found at salvage site
South Korean salvage crews on March 27 found what was presumed to be the remains of one of the missing victims of the "Sewol" sinking. The remains were found on the deck of the semi-submersible "White Marlin". They consisted of six bones near a beam beneath the front side of the ferry. It wasn't immediately clear whether the bones, measuring from 4 to 18 centimeters (1.5 to 7 inches), belonged to one person or multiple people. DNA tests to identify the victims would take at least two to three weeks. Crews have also found shoes and other items that were presumed to have belonged to victims. It was presumed that the bones came out with the mud that spilled out from the ship's front. The crews suspended operations to empty the ferry of fuel and water after the bones were discovered at around 11:25 a.m. Officials from the National Forensic Service as well as the Coastguard and the health ministry have been dispatched to identify the remains, a process expected to take around two to three weeks. Once the wreck reaches a port in the city of Mokpo, investigators will spend about a month cleaning it and evaluating it for safety. They will then begin to search the vessel for the remains of the nine missing victims and look for clues that could further illuminate the cause of the sinking, which has been blamed on overloaded cargo, improper storage and other negligence.

Grounding off Husum
Enroute from Husum, Sweden, to Motril the "Symphony Sky" ran aground off Husum in the afternoon of March 26, 2017. It had just loaded a cargo of paper at the local plan Husumfabrik and got stuck on the way out of the bay short after leaving port at 2.30 p.m. with a crew of 11 from Russia, Ukraine and the Philippines nationality on board amidst strong wind.

On March 28, an inspector from Transport Agency was exected on site. The launch "Pilot 752 Se" was alongside the casulaty in the morning.
