The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) Marine division accident reports are available at www.ntsb.gov/investigations/reports_marine.htm. Scroll down to Accident Investigations, click on Databases. On the Databases screen under Reports click on Marine. The NTSB investigates incidents in U.S. waters and accidents involving U.S. vessels in foreign waters; ships, government vessels and sometimes private vessels (yachts) are investigated. No matter the size of the vessels involved, mariners may learn some good lessons.
