Re: US Navy ship strikes reef because of incorrect charts

it does make sense they would not want anybody aboard. Not only would the USS Guardian be full of the latest technology, but I am sure in the aftermath of such a grounding, things are chaotic at best and unsafe at worst.

That said.. the Captain was wrong and arrogant to dismiss the warnings of the reef with a "take it up with the embassy"
