Over here in San Diego we have been following this grounding since it took place on Christmas day, 2005. This is a major incident and the books will be rewritten about how to free a ship stuck in the sand. It is all a very interesting read and contains a lot of lessions learned the hard way by others. http://www.cargolaw.com/2006ni....html click on this link to go direct to an excellent site that updates frequently with the latest information.
This Memorial Day, remember those who were lost serving our country on the high seas in the U.S. Navy aboard PT Boats. Recently we were invited out for a ride on the only operational combat-veteran PT Boat, PT 305 in New Orleans.
See what it was like here. ▶
