The Yugoslav motor bulk carrier Dunav was presumed to have sunk in stormy seas on December 28, 1980, after she was reported taking in water in very heavy weather conditions about 700 miles SE of Cape Nojima, Japan, in lat 31.00N, long 156.43W. An air and sea search failed to find any trace of her 31 crew members.

The Dunav with a hull and machinery value of USD7.5m had sailed from Hamilton, Ontario on October 20 for Tsingtao loaded with a cargo of 12,000 tons of steel, 11,000 tons of newsprint and general goods. En route she had called at Los Angeles for bunkers, sailing from that port on December 9.
