The Tanker Sergo Zakariadze grounded at the entrance to San Juan Harbor in Puerto Rico a week before I
started working there. I can remember looking out the airplane window on approach and seeing this site.
It remained grounded there for four whole months. One sailor was injured in the operation of raising it.

The Normandie  was a French ocean liner that caught fire and capsized in it's berth in 
  New York City  in 1942. These photos show the importance of  de-watering after a fire.



 

 


The Exxon Valdez ran aground in Prince William Sound, Alaska in March 1989, spilling about 11 million gallons of crude. Despite being
only 53rd on the list of "most oil spilled", it was the spill that set the ball rolling for much of the regulations that are in place today
