AMERCIAN NAVY IN ACTION – NAUTICAL FUN
The following is apparently a documented conversation between the USS Lincoln and a Canadian 'vessel':-
Canadian: 'Please divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.'
Americans: 'Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the north to avoid a collision.'
Canadians: 'Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.'
Americans: 'This is the captain of a us navy ship. I say again, divert your course.'
Canadians: 'No. I say again, you divert your course.'
Americans: 'This is the aircraft carrier USS Lincoln, the second largest ship in the United States Atlantic fleet. We are accompanied by three destroyers, three cruisers and numerous support vessels. I demand that you change your course 15 degrees north, I say again, that's one five degrees north, or counter-measures will be undertaken to ensure the safety of this ship. '
Canadians: 'This is a lighthouse. Your call.'
