Reminds me of the Enterprise getting stuck in the mud on her approach to Alameda 'bout thirty years ago.... George Takei was a guest aboard ~ commented on her captain being just like James T Kirk... :rolleyes:

 

Was fun waving to her while crossing the Bay Bridge... but nobody waved back! ^_^

Stuff like the Mo getting stuck was a career-ender for almost any commander. In a way, it's too bad, because most of the C.O.'s had excellent records prior to the incident. Kinda like the architect sitting on the park bench, crying his eyes out because, in spite of his brilliant record as an architect, it was all spoiled because of one little incident that I won't elaborate on here (not P.C. and this is a family forum!) :o
