Cougar ace

The M/V Cougar Ace is a Singapore-flagged RO-RO (Roll On-Roll Off) car carrier vessel. The Cougar Ace was built by Kanasashi Co., of Toyohashi, Japan and launched in June of 1993. Specifications cite a length of 199m, draft of 9.72m, beam of 32.26m and a maximum speed of 18.6 knots. The Gross Registered Weight is 55,328 tonnes. It is owned by Mitsui O.S.K. Lines.

On May 4, 2005, Cougar Ace delivered 5,214 automobiles at the Fraser River wharves in Richmond, British Columbia. This set a Canadian record for the most vehicles offloaded from a single ship.

On July 23, 2006, she was en route from Japan to Vancouver, British Columbia, Tacoma, Washington, and Port Hueneme, California, with a cargo of 4,813 vehicles. During a transfer of ballast water, she lost stability and developed an 80-degree list to port. There were reports of a large wave striking the vessel during the ballast transfer, but it is unknown what effect this had on her loss of stability.[3] On July 24, the US Coast Guard successfully rescued the 23 crew members.

Approximately 4,700 of the vehicles were Mazdas, with about 60% of these being the 2007 Mazda3s and 30% being Mazda CX-7 crossover SUVs. They are said to be valued at US$117 million. Mitsui OSK is executing a salvage operation in order to recover as many assets as possible. On July 31, 2006, a member of the Titan Salvage salvage team from Seattle, Washington, slipped and fell to his death as the team was preparing to return from the Cougar Ace to the tug Sea Victory. Crowley Maritime, owner of Titan Salvage, was waiting to inform the victim's family before releasing his name to the public. The fallen crew member was revealed to be Marty Johnson, a forty-year old resident of Seattle, Washington. (Source: Wikipedia)
