USS Fitzgerald collision June17th


Book Reviewer
From a cursory look at the damage to the starboard side of Ftz's bridge and the merch's port bow this does not look good from a Rule of the Road pov.

I was in a Frigate that did some fast 35 degrees of helm sheepdog like manoeuvres to show off to -at the time- one of the highest profile, most prestigious liners. I've no doubt the respective old men spoke on Channel 16 to arrange a spectacular for the liner's passengers before hand. What could go wrong?

At 28 knots, 35 degrees of Starboard rudder on: STEERING GEAR BREAKDOWN .......!

Sod's law.
