Striking of ice and subsequent flooding, fishing vessel Saputi, Davis Strait, Nunavut, 21 February 2016 .: TU3-7/16-0016E-PDF

"On 21 February 2016, the fishing vessel Saputi, with 30 people on board, was fishing turbot in the Davis Strait, 167 nautical miles east-northeast of Resolution Island, Nunavut, and 220 nautical miles west-southwest of Nuuk, Greenland. At 1935 Atlantic Standard Time, the vessel struck a piece of ice and was holed in the shell plating on the starboard side at the forward end of the cargo hold. After pumping operations failed to keep up with the ingress of water, the cargo hold was sealed, and it subsequently flooded. The vessel developed a severe list to port but proceeded under its own power to Nuuk, Greenland, arriving on 24 February. No injuries were reported"--Summary, title page.
