WreckerL will recall when the press went to town over 'Atom death sub in near miss at Devil's Island' and 'Crew at near panic stations!' We only had the two mandatory tugs with us, and rate main was selected within a nano second as I recall.

I do remember that well, as I recall the papers quoted an un-named "nuclear expert" who was watching from Devils Point who said that we'd obviously scrammed the reactor to prevent a major nuclear incident.

He didn't explain how we got to the breakwater without the tugs assistance or propulsion though.

Not bad seeing as how we lost control of the rudder for the time it takes to flick a switch.
