Description: The sinking of the Soviet Mike class submarine and the explosion and tragic loss of life
aboard the battleship USS Iowa (BB-61) in April 1989 are reminders that peacetime naval
accidents are a fact of life. Since the end of World War II, the world's navies have had over 1,200
documented major accidents, resulting in dozens of ship sinkings, hundreds of explosions and
fires, costly repairs and early vessel retirements, and major loss of life.1 The accidents have
occurred in shipyards and ports, in harbors and coastal waters, and on the high seas throughout
the world. Many of the accidents were spectacular and are well known. The majority, however,
are obscure and little publicized.
