On the morning of July 29, 2015, the uninspected commercial fishing vessel Ferrigno Boy was returning to Ventura Harbor, California, to offload its squid catch when the main propulsion control system failed to respond to a command for astern propulsion, resulting in an allision with the Ventura Harbor Boatyard travel lift pier. The starboard bow of Ferrigno Boy struck the pier, causing a minor inset of the steel hull above the waterline. The lift pier sustained significant structural damage, initially estimated at $850,000. A sailboat moored in the vicinity of the pier also had minor damage. There were no injuries and no reported pollution.
