*qaS* doesn't take an object. The thing that happens is the subject.

You failed to include a locative marker to tell us /where/ this happened.

When modifying one noun with another, the modifying noun comes first. It 
doesn't act like an adjectival verb, coming last. It's *bIQ Dujmey 
Daq*/place of water ships, water ships' place,/ not *Daq bIQ Dujmey.*

*bIQ Dujmey DaqDaq qaSpu' Hoch
*/Everything happened in the place of water ships./
