That minesweeper on the rock is really great. Funny thing is, I have to admit I served in a German minesweeping-group, too. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blush.gif

I also knew the boat. When they came into service our "Geschwader" was disbanded, so we had nothing good to say about them and this news made me laugh even harder. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif

When I was attending the Navy's "Fire Controlman A-school", there was a German Master Chief who was at the school as a guest instructor... One of the things he said when we were just asking him what the German Navy was like, got a good laugh out of the class...

He said..

"See, when you American sailors go to see your Captain, it's because you are in trouble. When we go to see our Captain, it's to get DRUNK.".

Prien - good line! I remember at the time of the first Gulf War, it was big in the news here in the States that the German Navy would be helping out by sending minesweepers to the Gulf.
To illustrate the story, they showed film of a German minesweeper, loading stores in preparation to sail. They were swaying a cargo net into the hold - it was clearly filled with nothing but cases of Bitburger...
S! Gooner

HOOD and RENOWN swacked into each other in the '30's and WARSPITE was in several collisions with other dreadnoughts. The famous Arctic explorer, R.F. Scott banged into another ship in his battleship.

Apart from Jutland, probably the most colorful event in Admiral Sidney Bailey's career. The HOOD/RENOWN collision produced quite a dust-up.

Not to be outdone here, I'd like to nominate the USN for the naval misadventure title, Back in the 20's an entire division of destroyers ran onto a rock ledge off the coast of California.

That's seamanship of a very special order.

Compared to the 31 May 1879 own goal by the German navy in which the steam warships GROSSER KURFURST and KONIG WILHELM had illicit commerce in the English Channel, resulting in nearly 300 deaths, and the deep sixing of the former, this light-hearted romp was a parking lot fender bender between mopeds.
