dalesql: (Clowns heights fears)
Just heard on the news that another US Pacific Fleet ship has suffered a collision at sea with an oil tanker. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?!?!?!?!!? You had one just a couple months ago. Where was the bridge crew and CIC crew? Their first job is to keep track of every other ship, submarine and aircraft in the vicinity!


I wonder if this is a result of the ongoing reduction in ship crew sizes. If there are fewer crew to stand the watches, problems with information overload, and exhaustion should now be front and fscking center on the investigation, and not at all limited to just this one single ship. But I fear that it will be confined to just the ship and crew. To avoid bringing into question the wisdom and selfpercieved infallibility of high ranking admirals and their ongoing policy of reducing ship crew sizes.
