Lessons Learned USCG Casualty from Investigations Alaska Ranger A regular feature in Proceedings: "Lessons Learned From USCG Casualty Investigations." In this ongoing feature, we take a close look at recent marine casualties. We explore how these incidents occurred, including any environmental, vessel design, or human error factors that contributed to each event. We outline the U.S. Coast Guard marine casualty investigations that fol- lowed, describe in detail the lessons learned through them, and indicate any changes in maritime regulations that occurred as a result of those investigations. Unless otherwise noted, all information, statistics, graphics, and quotes come from the investigative report. All conclusions are based on informa- tion taken from the report.
