    the damage on the Navy ship will be payed for with tax money, but I wonder if the insurance will pay for the repairs on the fishing trawler. It must be rather devastating for the owner.

    Did anyone get hurt? Ships can be rapaired easily - with people it's a good deal harder.

    but it could have been worse.

    as for the ship the unseen damage will come out later who to say the whole ship isn't tweaked a bit, I know that if the loader are off as much as an 1/8" the shells wont load.
    and when I saw the ship yesterday when I was delivering to a shop near it there is a bid dent at the water line in the stern from it being pushed back about 20-30 ft. on impact.
