    • "A former director of the National Transportation Safety Board's office of marine safety, Marjorie Murtagh Cooke, said it could take a year or more to determine what happened."

      A whole year to invent a plausible lie?

      Maybe the duty officer was giving the female crew member a knee trembler, while the ship was on auto pilot?

      Luckily they were in friendly waters, with the Japanese coast guard to assist.

      Ally number one is known for machine gunning life rafts and survivor's!

      They crossed the bow of the container ship, that was their danger zone on the starboard side.

      well the ship did just drop out of "Hyperspace" and moving at that velocity the officer on deck barley has enough timbe to douche and apply some cake free makeup

      More like a shopping mall sized object!

      I stand corrected, shopping mall sized! I wonder how much is now unusable due to the flooding. The missiles are probably suspect now if there was water intrusion.

      OOD was thinking "lemme see, red light is that port or starboard? Well I'm sure she'll give way whatever. We are the Navy after all!"

      Dumb ass.

      Are you telling me just ONE guy is on the lookout for a BILLION DOLLAR SHIP with 200 sailors????!

      What if it had been Muzzie terrorists?

      :facepalm:

      Fantail look-out with in communication with all the other lookouts and the dude on the bridge to relay shit to the officer in charge.

      Port & starboard bridge lookouts.

      Radar fuckers in a compartment away from the bridge who constantly monitor radar and other inputs and maintain a "plot" that tracks all the shit out to a certain distance, variable depending upon situation.

      Sonar duded (my forte) constantly monitor shit via sound in the water. If the cargo ship was moving slowly its screws were making very little noise and the bulk of the vessel could have blocked what little sound was emanating.

      This event baffles me. When we were in populated waters all of us, even when stoned, paid extra attention to our "situational awareness." Fuckers aboard warships know they are sitting atop a LOT of fuel that burns furiously and the magazines and weps launchers were full of shit that goes BOOM!!! Toss in the fucking sharks in the water and it was in everybody's best interests to avoid a fucking wreck.

      I wonder if modern political correctness could have had even a wee bit to do with this affair? There were times when there was some levity on the bridge or in sonar control or other areas of the ship BUT... ALWAYS present was the knowledge that this was no fucking game and shit could get very serious with no warning. The warship was in "safe" waters as in not near Iran or off Korea and Away from China waters so the military threat was mostly absent with this event. When we were steaming the seas the Cold War was embedded in thoughts, tactics and deployments. Everywhere was a danger zone. Maybe that lack of military threat had the squids at ease and not as alert as they should have been.

      All involved will be thoroughly grilled in a manner within the USA that only the military can perform. Thus my advocating for the thug and traitorous elements of USA society to confront military tribunals. Those smart-assed smirking punk scum mouthy no-respect filth seen behaving idiotically would be treated MUCH different in a tribunal and they would NEVER smirk or mouth off again unless they were truly mentally ill.
