Ship Collision / Allision
On May 10, 2004, the ship hit the pier at Downtown Marina (Beaufort SC). The collision resulted in destroying a 40 ft / 12 m long section of the dock and two damaged yachts. It was caused by a strong water current pusshing the ship's stern into the pier. One of the ship's entrance doors was damaged. Departure was delayed by ~1,5 hours.
Note: Actually, this type of marine accidents is called “allision” (striking a fixed object) as opposed to “collision” (striking another vessel).
