It's dangerous to go off half-cocked after an incident like this, especially it it could just as easily have been caused by an old mine that had broken free from it's rusted mooring. I can recall reading warnings in the Notices to Mariners during the 1980s about old mines in the North Sea, as well as similar warnings in 1998 about mines in the waters off Albania. I actually sighted a drifting sea-mine in the Atlantic in 1975, which our ship only missed by about 50 feet.
