10. The value of the ship might not be an issue

I doubt if the ship is a total loss. Minesweepers should be built pretty tough, so some time in drydock with a crew of welders might bring it to 100%.

The broken section of reef might take a long time to self-repair. Meanwhile, it'll be a snorkel/scuba tourist destination, "See the spot where the U.S. Navy crashed!"

The captain will enjoy his next assignment as a supply officer at Diego Garcia Naval Station.
