I agree with Derek.

It looks like it even bulged the pressure hull aft of the impact point
(under the walkway).
I'm having a hard time understanding why the damage appears to be on the
port side- I would have expected either the whole bow or the underside
of the bow....unless she was keeling over in a very tight turn when she
hit whatever she hit; and that doesn't make any sense either because a
turn that would keel her over that direction would be toward the object
she collided with, instead of away from it. Am I correct in assuming
that the sail would point toward the inside of the turn?

Or is that an illusion created by the walkway narrowing?

Maybe they ran into a Russian boat that was performing a "Crazy Ivan"
and the running aground is a cover story?

I'll let Bob say it for me:
------
....I already know. God/Yahweh/TrueAllah/Buddah/Roddenberry/Asimov and
I are on a first-name basis. In fact, I called him this evening, and
he asked me to pass on a message to you. He wants you to do the
following:

1) Shut the **** up. You do *not* speak for him in any one of his many
forms. Not even when he dresses up at Cthulu to scare the **** out of
college frat punks holding bogus sacrificial rites as part of their
drunken frosh initiation hazings.

2) Seek professional psychiatric help. Now. Not next week, but
immediately after you read this. You're obviously deranged, and some
event in your past - probably child molestation, but it could just be
something as simple as eating too many boxes of Super Sugar Crisp or
Honey Comb for breakfast in one sitting - has caused you to go whacko.

3) Don't post here again, because not only do *we* not want to read
your bull****, God/Yahweh/TrueAllah/Buddah/Roddenberry/Asimov also
reads usenet, and if He/They don't want to read your crap, then it's
in your best interests not to post here or anywhere else.

Otherwise, be prepared to become a condom for Satan when you meet your
final end...

...On a side note, the Navy Department has officially confirmed that
the mountain the sub hit was *not* on any nav charts whatsoever, and
that the sub's navigation team did have the latest updated charts.
While the Skipper has been temporarily reasssigned during the
investigation to shore duty, it looks more positive for his career
aspects than previous talk would have given.

Hi OM,

Can you tell me what your reference is for this confirmation? I have
3rd hand knowledge to the contrary and I'd like to set them straight.
Thanks!
