WTF. 8O

IPODS on watch, rigging up the ships speakers to listen to music?

$1:
The captain, Commander Ryan Brookhart, was relieved of his duties after the Navy found that more than 30 errors, - including "an informal atmosphere" and "a weak command" - led to the "avoidable accident".


Weak command my ass, deriliction of duty is more like it. His next command will likely include a small desk and a large map of Greenland.

I realise that there isn't much to do in the Navy anymore, but that's crazy. That captain is in a world of shit....and then some.

I read an article a few years back about how the US Navy had restructured its ship-board work regimen to be more like 9-5 type hours. Stuff like no more 12 hour dogwatches, 8 hours between shifts(except during wartime of course) etc, etc.. but THIS, this is just ridiculous. It's not a friggin Caribbean cruise.

$1:
The report slammed the navigator, who was listening to his iPod in his cabin while revising for an exam at the time.


Well that kinda indicates he wasn't on watch at the time, so I'm not sure why this is being brought up as an issue. The 'gator doesn't stay on the bridge 24/7.

$1:
Sonar operators and radio men were missing from their posts.


This is more of the problem. Unless they were operating at reduced manning levels for whatever reason it sounds like they weren't doing an adequate job of monitoring their contacts.

$1:
Others drove the attack sub while "with one hand on the controls and their shoes off", it said.


Well to be fair the guy at the con only needs to be able to read numbers on dials. They don't need shoes to do this. This is more of a readiness concern in that the sailor isn't 100% ready to respond to an emergency. The article was written to make it seem like things on the sub were worse off than it was. However it still doesn't excuse poor watchkeeping and the CO's duty to ensure a proper watch was being maintained.

The Navy has plenty to do. The people in charge of those things simply don't talk about them is all.

Apparently this happened in March of 2009. The Sun's article sounds little better than supermarket tabloid to me. I did some searching and found a good bit of information on a Facebook page about the incident. In particular, the technical information towards the bottom of the page explains why the two ships might not have seen each other.
