How boats are lost?

As I prepare for a future trip down the Thorny Path, are there published accounts or studies of the most common or frequent mistakes or errors made that result in the loss of a boat. Examples could include entering unfamiliar harbors at night, single or multiple boats dragging anchor (discounting hurricanes) and tangling up with well anchored boats, thru-hull failures, poor navigation practices resulting in reef groundings, etc. Thanks.
