A considerable number I seem to recall, though I can't remember specifics without looking through my large pile of the digest. Small coasters and fishing boats have the problem more than big ships because their minimum crewing levels are inadequate.
Round here, coasters hit rocks and fishing boats hit the Island of Rum quite frequently after the watchkeeper has fallen asleep. It seems that watch alarms are very unreliable.
