Years ago someone posted here about a near grounding of an S girl in the Atlantic. The gist of it was the nav did not calculate the 3 or4 knot drift added to their speed by the Gulf Stream. Which boat was this? Can someone dig up that old post?

That's unfortunate.  I'm sure that you have knowledge, given your military history, that we would find of interest and value.  Perhaps you would  reconsider your decision?
