The "Confederation" serving between Wood Island and Pictou sustained minor damage when it hit a dock in dense fog at the Wood Islands terminal on June 14, 2019. The ship experienced slight damage to a rubber bumper when it allided with a portion of the older docking infrastructure on the west side of the berth. The "Confederation" pushed a concrete capping on the dolphin and moved it a few feet. The ship’s rubber bumpers protected the ship. The bumper has already been repaired. The accident happened at very slow speed. Nobody was hurt. One sailing was cancelled so officials could carry out a detailed inspection of the vessel and confirmed that no further damage occurred to the ship.
The "Ardmore Sealifter" rescued a Toronto man and his crew on June 13, 2019, when stormy weather forced them to abandon the "Boundless", a 38-foot cutter. None of the four people on board was injured. The boat set sail from Baddeck, N.S. on June 5 with the aim of reaching the south coast of Portugal, a 6,600 kilometre trip, a month later. About 600 kilometres east of New York City, the "Boundless" encountered strong winds and waves about six metres high. A wave hit the boat in a fashion that snapped the aluminium rudder which was then parallel to the surface of the water. The skipper Geoff Fairbank and the crew, which includes Neil Hetherington, Marty Cameron and Alan Dalquen, sent out a MayDay. The "Ardmore Sealifter", about 30 kilometres south of the boat, changed course and the captain turned the tanker to make it parallel with the sailboat. Then a ladder rope was dropped down about 12 metres. Shortly after that, the mast of the boat hit the hull of the tanker and was snapped. But all of the crew were taken off safely. The "Boundless" was lost at sea. The tanker which had sailed from Castellon, entered the port of New York on June 18.

On June 18 at 9 a.m. the Swedish Coast Guard had pumped off more than 32 tons of diesel fuel from the grounded "Bonita" in the Lurö archipelago. The decision to drain the fuel was taken jointly with the Swedish Transport Agency in the evening of June 17 after the vessel's owner could not present a separate recovery plan. The measure was necessary to minimize the risk of oil discharges in connection with the vessel being unloaded. The weather was favourable and the Coastguard had control over the situation. With the oil removal the Coast Guard's mission was terminated and it became the owner's responsibility to refloat the ship.
