    Re: Fw: Grounding of cruiser PORT ROYAL

    The news article did not mention anything about radar utilization or
    wether there was a harbor pilot aboard. Hmmm...even on a shake down
    cruise with a sleep deprived (hung over ?) skeleton crew this should
    not have happened. Maintaining a tug escort out of dry dock until all
    systems are confirmed functional would have been prudent. Simple radar
    ranging would have saved the day for sure.
