Submarine/Cruiser collision


He bowls overhand.
That one was very much on the sub CO's hands. He suddenly decided he was going to pretend to be a war hero in an exercise and throw normal safety protocol/procedures to the wind. Supposedly he was a golden boy before this incident.

Isn't periscope depth some where between 50 and 60 feet?
Submarine depth is measured in bottom of keel to surface, not top of sail to surface.

besides a major screw up like this I have found a golden boy is only a golden boy until those senior people retire, I saw several who were "golden boy's" get eaten alive (or should I say held to same standard as others) when those shielding them retired.
