how many people are on the bridge of a naval ship at any one time, would one of them not be looking out the window, or at the echo sounder

When I did a bridge team management course in the NMCI (CIT days) we went out on an INS vessel. It was quite a culture shock from merchant ships where bridge teams were the old man, maybe the 3/0, an AB at the wheel and the cadet to make tea/coffee. On the INS ship it seemed like the entire bloody crew was on the bridge leaving port and I think the cook was reading out depths as we left Cork Harbour...

But deep sea, you'd run out of paper if the depth sounder was left on continuously...

Modern integrated bridge equipment would probably alarm, but many ships don't have this level of technology I would imagine?

Don't think the lack of equipment is the problem,it's more the famous human error factor I think.

The Wiki page makes interesting reading.

This would have confirmed my old fells deep seated prejudices about the navigation capabilities of any Navy.

Further developments on the USS Guardian, from The Guardian no less!


US navy will dismantle minesweeper stranded on coral reef

The damage to the ship that ran aground in the Philippines is so extensive the vessel will have to be cut up and removed

They would have completed the image by a picture of the Costa Concordia in her prime too!

Cuidad de Cadiz aka The Airbus Ship is aground off Mostyn and proving tricky to refloat. The Kingdom of Fife is standing by to assist http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/sho...px?imo=9270062

Emma Maersk has an ingress of water into the engine room and has "terminated" her voyage at Suez.

Update:
Could be a design flaw

The Danish shipping giant has also ordered all seven other E-class ships not use their stern thrusters until investigators discover what caused the incident.

Reports say the engine room of the 15,500-teu Emma Maersk (built 2006) has been left under eighteen metres of water.

Maersk Line’s Head of Ship Management, Palle Laursen, said the investigation into the incident was still ongoing, and that repairs will take time.
