Re: US Navy ship strikes reef because of incorrect charts

As Jon noted earlier, this is not a remote location. Looks like just a screw up attributable to lack of "attention to detail," as the Navy would put it.

Alberg 35: With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the ship.
