When watching the show about how the 'U.S. San Diego. sank off N.Y., I noticed one issue which was not considered. The Navy's report said the ship was sunk by a mine, but the divers asked if so, why did the explosion take place so far aft. If they had ever maneuvered a vessel, they would realize that maybe a lookout had seen the mine. The Captain would have ordered a turn to Starboard,as shown in the show. The ship would have passed close to the mine and as she made a turn, the stern would have swung out to port. This could have caused the ship to make contact with the mine aft of mid ship on the port side.
