HONOLULU - The Navy offloaded fuel, water and personnel from a grounded, $1 billion guided missile cruiser so tugboats and a salvage ship can try
again early Sunday morning to free it from a rock and sand shoal.
The USS Port Royal ran aground on Thursday evening, about a half-mile south of the Honolulu airport where it was visible from several vantage points
Just how in the hell does a US Navy skipper beach his boat???
With the US looking like complete morons due to foreign policy and the economy, things like this are the last thing we need to make the press
Anybody have a figure on how much the salvage tugs are going to make on this deal??
Something tells me that they can retire on this fee.
