Panbo editor, publisher & chief bottlewasher from 4/2005 until 8/2018, and now pleased to have Ben Stein as a very able publisher, webmaster, and editing colleague. Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Wonder if USS San Francisco had a Garmin aboard when they hit that sea mount. Then again they were running submerged. Hmmm – that brings up the question if they are just using the Garmin on the surface or perhaps they are feeding it a position signal from an inertial nav unit and using it to plot?

  2. What really surprises me is that you were allowed on board with a camera!

    Sharp eyes, Terry! Yes, that’s a pair of Kenwood handheld radios hanging from the wiring, and the backside of another Garmin plotter to the right.
