The "Thorco Isadora" suffered a main engine problem and was subsequently disabled 12 miles south of Pointe Natashquan, Quebec, in position 049 54 48.0N, 061 46 09.0W,on July 15, 2019, at 10.50 a.m. The crew carried out repairs and the vessel resumed its voyage from Becancour to Baker Lake, ETA July 22.
A salvage operation was started after the "Coyhaique" on July 3, 2019, ran aground near Huichas island in the Moraleda channel, near Puerto Aguirre, Aysén Region, on its voyage from Puerto Chacabuco to Puerto Montt. The ship with 20 passengers and 18 crew members on board was listing to port, and while all of them were taken ashore by the motor boat "Alexis" and transferred to Puerto Aguirre in good health, one officer died for causes which were investigated. The ship was protected by the patrol ships "Ortiz" and "Micalvi" together with the LSG "Aysén" and the "LPM 4411" of the Chulean Navy. The salvors were next having to contend with the 15 cattle trucks on deck. On July 7, 17 of the 244 cattle had already died. The ship’s hull was breached and its engine room flooded with some oil pollution. Salvors were trying to stabilize the ship before working out how best to take them to safety, likely via a ship-to-ship transfer. Food and water were being delivered the cattle through the top of the trucks. After one week the Oxxean SA refloated the ship aling with more than 200 cattle in an operation with about 90 technicians and workers as well as six support vessels. They were able to control the water ingress and seal the leaks, allowing the ship to be towed to Puerto Laguna seven km south of the grounding position which offered better conditions against the inclement weather for temporary repairs on July 10 and then complete the rescue of the animals whith were taken aboard three vessels to Puerto Chacabuco.

The "Sea Eagle II" suffered a problem with the engine gear box on the Lake Erie, near Kingsville, Ontario, in position 041 47 48.0N, 082 26 36.0W,on July 13, 2019, at 5.20 p.m. The vessel proceeded to an anchorage for repairs. It arrived at Detroit on July 14 at 11.15 p.m.
On July 10, 2019, at 12:04 p.m. Ramsgate's All-Weather Lifeboat was launched at the request of HM Coastguard to a yacht on fire with a view to towing it back to Ramsgate. Whilst the Ramsgate lifeboat "Esme Anderson" made its way to the casualty the North East Spit pilot launch, which was passing by, saw the vessel alight and headed in its direction. The pilot boat then retrieved the family of three male adults and one teenage boy from their life raft, took them aboard, along with their life raft, and brought them back to Ramsgate Harbour. Also during this time the "Typhoon Tow" had arrived on the scene and using their fire hose, attempted to put the fire out. Once the all-weather boat arrived on scene the volunteer RNLI crew set up two further fire hoses and assisted in trying to put the fire out. After about three quarters of an hour of hosing the vessel down, it took on sea water, as the level of the hull had burnt to the sea level and sank, fortunately into water deep enough to not cause any issues to other passing boats.
