Brig "Mary Halket" Same ship shipwrecked twice?

Classification: Query
Surnames: Halket
My ggg grandfather,David Halket,owned a number of ships during the mid 1800s. One of his ships,"Mary Halket", was capsized and sunk in 1837 (reported in Lloyds Marine List, Caledonian Mercury and The Times on the 7th June 1837) and in 1852 she ran aground and was condemned in Costa Rica (reported in The Times on the 3rd and 19th August 1852.

The ship was entered in the Lloyds Register from 1834 through to 1852.

The "Mary Halket" was a brig built in Yarmouth, England in 1833, 183 tons and A1.

Does anybody have some ideas how this shipwreck could happen twice?
