If the Iranians said they weren't their boats, our government should have taken them at their word, and sunk them as pirates.
I, like many others no doubt had thought what sitting targets us huge slow moving targets could be while passing through the Quoins.
My most fearful moment while passing through was during a monsoon downpour. Couldn't see the main deck from the bridge wing.
No thoughts of gunboats in those days though, as the Shah still ran the place.
