How many ships get sunk in the ocean every year?

    “Two large ships sink every week on average,” according to Wolfgang Rosenthal, of the GKSS Research Center in Geesthacht, Germany. This equals out to about 100 ships per year, excluding small craft or docked ships sunk by hurricanes or storms, which could be in the thousands in a given year. Many sinks are attributed to rogue waves, but they are often accounted to ‘bad weather’ and so it is difficult to track.
