The ship on its way to to Carriacou upon Grenada with a supply of concrete slabs when it ran into problems as the cargo shifted in rough seas. There were six Trinidadians on board, five crew members and the captain. The T&T Coast Guard received a distress call and immediately contacted the Grenada Coast Guard which then sent out a broadcast for vessels in the area to assist. The ship started taking in water and the small pump was not pumping the water fast enough, and the vessel started going down.
The first vessel to arrive was the "Elizabeth 2", whose crew members rescued five of the six Trinidadians on board the "Galleon Adventurer". The men were taken to the Grenada Coast Guard base by another vessel. However, the captain of the vessel went to retrieve some documents from the sinking ship and has not been seen since.
The local Coast Guard checked if it could recover the vessel or the captain, but without success. The search was ongoing. The five Trinidadian nationals who were rescued were interviewed by immigration authorities in Grenada.

The "Mangyongbong", loaded with soy, rice, flour and wheat for Radjin issued a distress signal on Feb 3, 2018, at 09.35 a.m. LT after the fuel ran out and that the ship did not have power since 1.5 days, in severe weather conditions with temperature below freezing point (-14C as of morning Feb 3). The ship was stuck in ice in the Tichaja bight off Vladivostok. While the authorities didn’t yet complete formalities, the ferry was not allowed to berth. The Coast Guard could not reach the ship to clear it for entering port, because of ice, which was preventing them from boarding. The master was demanding permission to berth immediately, because the ship and the crew of 30 were actually in distress.
