Just when you think only liveaboards with crappy equipment hit reefs. The USS Guardian apparently misplaced the reef by 8 nautical miles because the charts were inaccurate. I've had issues with GPS charts in the SEA area as well but nothing like 8 miles!!

Goes to show depending on electronics can only go so far The good news is that the Pinoy government is making sure damage is minimized.
