Charles, thanks for posting that link. I would never have guess that there were so many maritime accidents/incidents. gCaptain's info was a real eye opener for me.

Thanks Charles, very interesting. One of the stories about a sinking ship -

"The worldís most dangerous cargo claimed another bulk carrier, the 2012-built MV Trans Summer, off the coast of Hong Kong during a tropical storm. The sinking was typical of a slew of recent casualties involving nickel ore shipments, particularly from Indonesia to China. The only difference with this incident was that their were no lives lost."

Didn't know this about nickel ore cargos.

The cook found in the tug boat two days later trapped in a 100 ft. of water on the ocean floor is amazing!
