On October 28, 2016, at 1530 local time, the towing vessel Atlantic Raider was in the Blount Island Channel of the St. Johns River near Jacksonville, Florida, when it suddenly listed to port. Efforts to correct the list were ineffective; the list increased, water began to flood into the engine room, and the crew chose to intentionally ground the vessel. All three crewmembers disembarked safely. An oil sheen could be seen extending from the vessel. Damage was estimated between $800,000 and $1,200,000.
