In less than a week, I have noted 3 ships capsizing, 1 in Baja, MX, July 4th.....another in Jayapura, Papua and the most recent in Russia in the Volga River.

Across the globe we hear more and more stories of fisherman who can't bring their boats out to do their work.  The seas are angry and unpredictable.  Here''s another story of a fishing boat carrying 27 tourists with 16 Mexican crew members struggling in the sea when the ship capsized.

California residents rescued in fatal boat accident in Mexico

Fishing boat sinks in Baja

One person was reported dead and seven others missing Monday afternoon after a fishing boat carrying 27 U.S. tourists and 16 Mexican crew members capsized in rough seas in the Sea of Cortez, officials said.

The 27 tourists, most of them from California, were aboard the charter vessel Erick when a sudden storm struck the area about 2:30 a.m., hurling people into the ocean in the vicinity of San Luis Island, about 60 miles south of the Baja California port of San Felipe, the Mexican Navy said in a statement. The body water in which the ship capsized is also known as the Gulf of California.

"The weather was calm, and then a strong wind came,"  Dora Winkler, a spokeswoman with the Port of San Felipe, told the Los Angeles Times.

Some of the first people rescued -- two tourists and the boat's cook -- were plucked from the water by a Mexican fishing boat, according to Winkler.

All of the 16 Mexican crew members were rescued, she said. The tourist who died was only identified as an adult male. Initial reports said six people were missing; officials later raised the number to seven.

A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter from San Diego was assisting the Mexican navy as rescue crews scoured the area for survivors, said Coast Guard Petty Officer Pamela Boehland.

She said the Coast Guard was told by the Mexican Navy that most of the passengers were from Northern California and that one was from Port Angeles, Wash. The search was launched after one of the victims swam to shore and alerted Mexican officials, Boehland said.

"He swam to shore and actually walked to the nearest location," Boehland said, adding that she was unsure whether it was a town or village.

Mexican officials said all of the survivors were wearing life jackets. They were taken to local hospitals and appeared to be in good condition, the Mexican Navy said.

South Korean oil ship explodes; North not suspected

A South Korean Coast Guard boat cruises near the broken cargo ship Doola No. 3 after an explosion off the western port city of Incheon.

REPORTING FROM SEOUL -– An explosion on a fuel tanker off South Korea’s west coast Sunday killed five crewmen and left six missing, though authorities here do not suspect North Korean involvement.

Photographs showed that the blast aboard the 4,191-ton vessel Doola No. 3 broke the ship in half. The explosion took place several miles off the coast of Incheon, South Korean coast guard officials said. Five crew members aboard the ship were rescued.

Ship owners said Sunday that the explosion took place while gas was being drained from the oil tank. "The vessel usually transports diesel, but this time it carried gasoline. We are now examining whether it had any relation to the explosion," a company official told Seoul’s Yonhap news service.

Before leaving port in Incheon, the ship had unloaded 6,500 tons of gasoline.

The coast guard said it was searching for the missing crewmembers. Officials said that 11 South Korean and five Myanmar crewmen were aboard the ship.

The incident occurred far from the tense sea border with North Korea, where the communist regime is accused of torpedoing a South Korean warship in 2010, killing 46 crewmen.

Will add this to the 1/21 Q&A info but posting early here ...

The wobble induced North Sea storms are due to the pumping action of the wobble,
where the N Pole leans to the left for sunrise in Europe and then to the right for sunset in Europe. Thus the largest wave in to hit the Irish shores was registered at 2:00 pm.
But Europe also participate when the most violent push of the wobble occurs, when the Sun is high over the Pacific and Europe is in the dead of night. The globe is pushed violently north as the magnetic N Pole of Earth comes up over the horizon and is pushed away by Planet X. When this happens the globe is pushed SOUTHWARD on the opposite side of the globe, as the globe rolls as one.

What does this do to the rocky shores of Italy and any hapless ships moored or traveling just off the coast? The land is pushed UNDER the water, and the ship suddenly finds itself on rocks it though safely at a distance. Though obvious to the populace watching in amazement where the Sun is found these days, the Earth wobble is not something allowed into print. Thus the ship’s captain, desperate to explain what occurred, is at a loss and casting about to blame navigation equipment failure.

Italian cruise ship with 4,000 on board runs aground

14 Jan 2012 00:35

ROME, Jan 13 (Reuters) - A large Italian cruise ship carrying more than 4,000 people ran aground on a sandbar off the coast of Italy on Friday night and passengers and crew were being evacuated to a nearby island, coastguard officials said.

They said there were no immediate reports of injuries among the some 3,200 passengers and 1,023 crew. Those on board were being evacuated by lifeboats and other ships in the area.

The ship, the 290-metre-long Costa Concordia, ran aground at about 10 p.m. (2100 GNT) near the island of Giglio off the Tuscan coast, said the officials.

A statement from the Italian coastguard said the ship had taken on water and was listing about 20 degrees but that there was no danger of it sinking.

The cruise ship company said the cause of the incident was being investigated.

OK Becky, I'll scratch that. (Safety of large vessels....Malou is right) I think it must have been a question previously asked and answered here.  Anyone surviving out at sea will do so by sheer luck.

During the time when the plates are slamming into each other, Central America and the Carribean will suffer, as the weak link. These small plates will crumble and be crushed, creating such instability that anticipating a land ride in any of these locations is an extreme toss of the dice. When the Americas move into the Pacific, shortening the distance around the Pacific Rim and widening the Atlantic, the giant continents of North and South America will not simply drift evenhandedly westward. Moving plates move in the direction of least resistance, which in this case is toward the middle of the Pacific hole. Central America loses in this crunch, as do the smaller plates supporting the Caribbean islands. Going to sea in boats will scarcely be an answer, as the turmoil the water will be undergoing will create vortexes that will capsize large and small boats, and even dash well built submarines in deep water.

I have some ZT on the magnetism problems with ships bu there's something more that I'm looking for and I'll keep searching.

When it put on the brakes as it arrived at the Sun, in the Summer of 2003, the tail logically wafted past the halting Planet X to blow past the Sun to interfer with the electric grid in many countries in August-September of 2003, creating surges and brownouts, crashing the grids. The tail is charged, and this is the reason it clings to and follows Planet X, which is an immense planetary magnet. The tail blows away from the N Pole of Planet X, which is the outbound port of the magnetic particle flow that is the magnetic field of a planet.

In July, 2006 two ships, one near Florida and another near Alaska, listed so badly that one turned onto its side and another threw passengers overboard.
High waves or weather were not a factor.
In the Florida case, it was called a steering problem.

Jul 19, 2006
Passengers on the ship were thrown into the ocean after a steering problem caused the ship to tilt 30 degrees to the left right after it departed from Florida's Port Canaveral on its way to New York.

The US Coast Guard and Air Force were attempting to rescue 22 crew from a cargo ship carrying nearly 5,000 cars last night after it rolled almost on to its side and began taking on water 230 miles south of the Aleutian Islands.

Ships determine their list based on magnetic gyroscopes, which can be affected by magnetic pulse.
As the Zetas explained.

ZetaTalk: GodlikeProduction Live, written July 29, 2006
To all extent it appears to be a steering problem, but what made the automated equipment go awry? This equipment has been in use for many, many decades and of course uses stabilizing gyroscopes that utilise magnetics. Thus this is a magnetic anomaly, a type of magnetic surge that caused the gyroscopes to be off kilter. The ship was adjusting. The ship was attempting to adjust to what it perceived as reality. This had nothing to do with the captain steering a wheel and everything to do with the ship's internal gyroscopes trying to keep it steady and level. Does this equipment also turn the ship? It's involved in turning. If you're going to make a turn, you tell this equipment, the automated equipment, that you wish to make let's say a 90º turn. Well the ship doesn't immediately try to turn in place in the ocean, this takes a bit of tacking, tacking to the left or the right until the 90º angle is affected. You tell it how tight you want to make the turn. Do you have 2 miles before you need to be in that position or do you need to be there within 500 feet? Something like that. That indicates how sharp the turn should be or how gradual, but they have a limit on how sharp it would be.

However, since this mechanism is in place to say how sharp t

Scores missing after Indonesia ship wreck
About 33 people rescued so far after a boat carrying more than 200 migrants sank off the coast of east Java.

A boat believed to be carrying more than 200 migrants, many of them from the Middle East, has sunk off Indonesia's main island of Java, local media reported.

Police blamed the accident on overloading, telling the official news agency Antara on Saturday that the vessel appeared to have been carrying more than twice its capacity.

So far only 33 people have been rescued, Sahrul Arifin, the head of emergency and logistics at the East Java Disaster Mitigation Centre, said.

He said strong waves wrecked the wooden boat about 90km out to sea. "Our search and rescue team have begun sweeping the water around where the accident took place but we are now sending body bags to that area."

One of the survivors, Esmat Adine, told Antara that the vessel began rocking from side to side, which triggered widespread panic.

The passengers were very tightly packed, and therefore had nowhere to go, said the 24-year-old Afghan migrant.

"That made the boat even more unstable and eventually it sank," he added.

Adine said that he and others survived by clinging on to parts of the broken vessel until they were picked up by the local fishermen.

He estimated that more than 40 children were on the ship. It was not immediately clear if any were rescued.

Indonesia, a sprawling archipelagic nation of 240 million people, has more than 18,000 islands and thousands of kilometres of unpatrolled coastline, making it a key transit point for smuggling migrants.

Those on board on Saturday - apparently heading to Australia - were from Afghanistan, Turkey, Iran, and Saudi Arabia.

Last month, a ship carrying about 70 asylum seekers from Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan capsized off the southern coast of Central Java; at least eight people died.
