Ferry allided with dock
The "Hyak" was withdrawn from the Seattle-to-Bremerton run for a few hours in the morning of May 10, 2017, after she allided with Seattle's Colman Dock. The incident occurred as the ferry was docking just before 8:30 a.m. WSF inspectors looked at the ferry and found just minor damage. They loaded up a run for Bremerton and made it across Puget Sound, docking there just before 9:30 a.m. However, upon notifying the Coast Guard of the hard landing, they were told to remain in Bremerton until the Coast Guard decides whether they wanted to inspect the ferry. The ship was allowed to return to service with the 11:10 a.m. run.

Crane collapse in Falmouth Docks
On May 10, 2017, a crane has collapsed besides the "RFA Tidespring" at Falmouth Docks leading to the evacuation of the site. The cran fell with an enormous bang onto 10 acetylene cylinders at the dockside at 9 a.m. A firefighter suffered minor injuries while assessing the scene and was taken to hospital as a precaution. A 200m exclusion zone was set up over fears the cylinders could explode after the collapse, which was initially treated as a major incident. The cordon was lifted at 1 p.m. The response of the Cornwall Fire Service was in line with how it would plan for this type of incident. A&P Group, which owns the docks, said a full health and safety investigation would take place. All personnel have been temporarily evacuated from the docks whilst an assessment of the area was made.
