A Navy investigation finds the ailing skipper of a San Diego-based Navy cruiser retreated to his cabin for several weeks in the middle of a deployment, leaving the 330-member crew leaderless.

The probe also revealed that the skipper of the USS Cowpens, Captain Gregory W. Gombert, was having an improper and 'unduly familiar' relationship with the cruiser's acting executive officer, U-T San Diego reported Wednesday.

The Navy removed Gombert and the ship's command master chief, Master Chief Petty Officer Gabriel J. Keeton, from their positions on June 10. The reason given at the time was poor ship condition.

Ima havta be honest about this one: I once knew a Skipper, if I'd been on his ship, in his cabin.....

Forgot where I was for a minute there. I'll just hush now.

Needless to say, there were seamen all over the poopdeck and the hind quartermaster was open to suggestion. A med count revealed viagara was short, curious it was on board in the first place.
