    Another story in the same category:

    Of course, naval vessels are more obvious "exclusion zones." You stay away from ANY active military unit. But there's a catch here: this ship, an oiler, is a non-commissioned vessel operated mostly by civilians. It doesn't even look like a naval vessel. Yet they are trained to fire on approaching vessels under USN rules.

    By the way, for anyone unfamiliar with it, gCaptain.com is a great site for maritime news stories. They also have a very nice Facebook feed. It's a rare page that's worth "liking": https://www.facebook.com/pages/gCaptain/27223368885
