On April 23, 2016 the Danish fishing boat Christina Maiken capsized and sank in the Swedish part of the Kattegat while the ship was on its way to a fishing spot by the Oslo Fjord mouth. The two crew members were rescued by the fishing vessel Bjarke, which was in the vicinity.

The incident occurred in the area 30 miles north of Skagen. The fishing vessel sank around 200 meter water depth. In the investigation of the incident The Maritime Accident Investigation Board had its main focus on clarifying the circumstances that led to the sinking, the stability of the vessel and the use of rescue equipment.

The problems of rescue equipment underlines that the crews of smaller vessels are often ill-reliant in emergency situations developing rapidly. In this accident the crew was unable to use the rescue equipment, and were rescued by another ship that happened to be nearby.

The Maritime Accident Investigation Board has compiled a report in Danish, which is available HERE.
