Re: Dutch Frigate scraping U.S.S. Wisconsin
Not much as far as the USN was concerned. The ship was in New Orleans in 86 getting decommissioning work done on it and wasn't even running under it's own power, it had to be towed. If it had been active and the incident had caused damage enough to keep it out of action for repairs it would have been a different situation.
Just a minor fender bender as far as the services were concerned. I doubt if the Dutch CO and whoever was commanding the helm ever made flag rank though.
