Evergiven Sister Ship Runs Aground in Chesapeake Bay

U.S, Coast Guard, and the Maryland Department of the Environment said they were still trying to re-float the Ever Forward and that no injuries, pollution, or damage to the vessel.

Ever Forward reportedly ran itself aground in Maryland waters near Craighill Channel south of the Patapsco River while it was sailing from Baltimore to Norfolk last Sunday night.

“The ship is currently located in the channel between the Bay and Key bridges. There have been no injuries or spills. The ship’s grounding is not preventing other ships from transiting to the Port of Baltimore,” said William P. Doyle, executive director of the Maryland Port Administration. 

GCaptain Editor Mike Schuler shared Automatic identification system (AIS) footage showing Ever Forward traveling 12 knots before it became grounded. 

U.S, Coast Guard, and the Maryland Department of the Environment said they were still trying to refloat the Ever Forward and that no injuries, pollution, or damage to the vessel.

Coast Guard watchstanders have issued a Safety Marine Information Broadcast to other watercraft in the area that a safety zone will be in place while Ever Forward is being refloated, 

Unlike its sister ship Evergiven, Ever Forward has not obstructed any maritime shipping lanes.
