A US Navy Sub accidentally sinks a tug boat at Midway Island. The sub is the USS Georgia SSBN 729 and the tug is the Secota YTM-415 (Formerly YTB-415). Two crew members on the tug were lost.

This boat is the same as the tug I was on in the Philippines,  YTB-369.  I would bet the two that were lost in this tragic accident were snipes as they wouldn't have known what was going on as they would have been manning the engine room.
