At 0401 on 11 April 2002, the fishing vessel Seabreeze II collided, bow on, with the starboard side of the general cargo ship Forum Samoa II. There were no injuries to any person on either vessel, but the collision resulted in damage to the bow of the fishing vessel, which returned to port for repairs.

Neither vessel was keeping an adequate lookout before the collision and this report, as do many previous reports of collisions, emphasises the need for all vessels to maintain a proper lookout at all times.
