Re: US Navy ship strikes reef because of incorrect charts

I recently saw an episode of "Monk" (a rerun) where a navy submarine ran aground and the commander blamed the grounding on old and erroneous charts, which he had surreptitiously swapped twith he actual charts he was using to cover his ass. And then.....well never mind, but another example of life imitating art (or situation comedy).
