Visit our new Vessel Casualties & Pirate Activity Database ......... where daily updates of these ship news are posted. Stay up to date!

We're sorry, but there were so many sinkings, explosions, pirate attacks, fires, cargo mishaps, artillery battles on the water & other disasters at sea that we do not have room to print even the highlights this month. Many lost their lives at sea this month!!

But you can read all this month's disasters at our special Internet web feature which provides full details of each event. This month we also include special coverage of the great tragedy for USS Cole (DDG 67) including dramatic new pictures just posted & coverage of the 800-foot M/T Westchester which lost power Nov. 28 evening & ran aground about 60 miles south of New Orleans, spilling 546,000 gallons of crude oil & closing traffic to a 26-mile stretch of the Mississippi River today.

SPECIAL NOTE: The Cargo Letter has received new U.S. Navy photos of USS Cole disaster. Please view these dramatic pictures at our special "Gallery of Cargo Loss" website feature.

Our Daily Vessel Casualties & Pirate Activity Database is updated for you twice daily! You can also search ship wrecks & losses of the past in our extensive index.

Bookmark the site and visit every day! Thousands of visitors can't be wrong!

NOTE: The historic dangers of carriage by sea continue to be quite real. Shippers must be encouraged to purchase high quality marine cargo insurance from their freight forwarder or customs broker. It's dangerous out there.
