The USS Fitzgerald suffered two additional punctures to the hull while being loaded onto the heavy lift vessel MV Transshelf. The ship was returned to Yokosuka for repairs before another attempt will be made to load the ship for transport. Fitzgerald and 50 sailors will be moved to the Huntington-Ingalls shipyard in Mississippi to fix the damage caused by the collision with the ACX Crystal.

Fitzgerald was towed out to deep water for the loading, which was scheduled to take several days. At some point during the process, the supportstructure on the Transshelf hit the hull of the Fitz causing the damage.

At what point does 7th Fleet finally pull their collective johnson off the chopping block? It's becoming a meme at this point.

I think this one was more on the loading crew, not Seventh Fleet.

For sure, but that's my point: even when it's not their fault, they're still involved. They can't win for losing at this point.

No, they can't, but it's kind of hard for them to not be involved in this one. They'll get things sorted out eventually.

I know a place in India that can reprocess the whole structure within 3 to 6 months. And "dispose" of all the toxic residues left inside. How does $500,000 sound? It's my best price!

This latest damage is NOT the navy's problem.

This is ALL under control of the MV Transshelf.

Once the MV Transshelf took control of the loading of the USS Fitzgerald they are in control and responsible for damage to there FOB cargo.
