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 & other disasters at sea that we do not have room to print even the highlights this month -- even a historic navy attack against pirates & rescue of a civilian crew being held hostage!

SPECIAL NOTE: The Cargo Letter has two new photo features: Meals: Ready To Explode - Navy container barbecue at Guam! Great New Photos! M/V Modern Drive - Incredible Story! Incredible Photos!  Please view these dramatic pictures at our special "Gallery of Cargo Loss" website feature.

Our Daily Vessel Casualties & Pirate Activity Report 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.
