Re: US Navy ship strikes reef because of incorrect charts

There is no doubt that the Cap should not have allowed anyone on board. That's not surprising at all. Whatever the reason she got in that predicament, I just wonder why they didn't haul her off asap when she was bow-to. She must have been badly holed from the start and in danger of sinking if pulled free.

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