August Sub Entanglement Revisited

It appears my initial beliefs about a possible sub entanglement from last summer were probably incorrect.

When it was first reported that a fisherman claimed a sub got entangled on his nets, and that a nearby sub was unhelpful and that overall the Navy was secretive about any possible involvement, I mocked.

Now, however, the Navy has paid the man for the damage to his boat, although the “Navy did not give … any information about what it found during its investigation of the incident.

So, it appears that either the boat did indeed snag a sub, or that the Navy simply found it easier to pay this man to make this story go away. Either way, I still stand by the rest of my previous mocking.
