In 1856, after striking a submerged tree trunk, 'The Arabia' sank with its 220 tons of cargo into the Misseuri River. In 1988, the Hawley family began excavation and three years later they opened the Steamboat Arabia Museum, displaying the "Treasures of the Steamboat Arabia". Although only half of the cargo - housewares, tools, food and personal effects - is on display restoration work still continues.

On 14th February 1984, a set of 2 stamps was released by The Isle of Man on the ship Lady Elizabeth known as “ The Lady” which was wrecked off the Falkland Island in 1913 and was later beached in her present position at the east end of Port Stanley Harbour.
The first stamp depicts the Lady Elizabeth which was built in 1879 in Sunderland. The second stamp is the picture of the ‘Shipwrecks’ stamp already issued by the Falkland Islands which shows the wrecked hulk of the Lady Elizabeth. The stormy waters of the South Atlantic have proved graveyard for many ships and the seas around the Falkland Islands shows evidence of the dangers faced by sailors in those treacherous seas. The two small Island communities, the sea an ever-present background to their lives, are joined in this piece of maritime history.

Many traditional boats are still used for fishing in low scale in different parts of the world even today, specially in the rivers and lakes.These boats are still operated using sail and oars. These boats vary from place to place according to the geographical needs.Early fishing vessels included rafts, dugout canoes, reed boats, and boats constructed from a frame covered with hide or tree bark, such as coracles.Today, large scale fishing in the deep seas are done by mechanised trawlers and huge boats which can stay in the seas for many days.
