Grounding off Pichilinque
After downloading 4350 tons of rebar at Pichilingue port, the "FM Prosperity" ran aground a few meters from the coast, while it was assisted by the port Pilot who failed to bring the vessel to waters outside the navigation channel on Feb 26, 2013, at 6 a.m. The "FM Kingstown" had docked in Pichilingue on Feb 25, and that same day started downloading the rod.

Another attempt was to be undertaken at 9 p.m. with weather and tide favorable and supported by a larger tug. The incident did not disrupt shipping in the Harbour.
