In 2005, a U.S. Navy Submarine Ran Into a Mountain; The USS San Francisco didn't sink, and that's no accident.

In 2005, the nuclear attack submarine USS San Francisco suddenly stopped dead in its tracks. The ship's crew were thrown about, some over distances of 20 feet, and the majority of the 137-member crew suffered one injury or another—including one that would later prove fatal. Further inspection would explain what happened, and reveal that the submarine's bow looked like a crushed soda can. USS San Francisco had run into an undersea mountain.

On that day, January 8, 2005, the San Francisco had been approximately 360 miles southeast of Guam, traveling at flank speed (more than 30 knots). The navigational charts used by the ship's crew failed to show a seamount, or undersea mountain, protruding from the ocean floor. The sub smashed into it head-on.

I thought as I got older, I would learn wisdom and patience, but the only thing I have learned so far is that I don't give a damn.

They were running passive only. Generally speaking, seamounts don't generate sound.
People sleep peacefully in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to visit violence on those who would do them harm.
