Why such a post? You and none of the rest of us know what took place. Instead of some idiot watch officer, maybe it was some idiot enlisted helmsman who misunderstood the order, or maybe some idiot enlisted man who decided to check out and do maintenance on the emergency steering down below. Or more likely, there were no idiots, officer or enlisted. Just people, officer and enlisted, trying to do their jobs. Clearly something went wrong, and that will come out in the investigation.
