    Future Ship Powering Options

    now you're opening a can of worms... Nuclear Ships would require special berths to use, more (highly trained) crew. Some places won;t accept nuclear ships.Then in 30 years time, you have to try and dispose of it...

    BF Refits 2017-18

    Draggin this one up a bit, but was watching a programme on the HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH, and it showed the propeller blades were fitted by divers post undocking - from the size of them blades replacing the Normandie's should be a doddle!

    Portsmouth Berth 4 to be replaced

    I noticed that as well. I winder if it is due to Berth 3 being more quicker for turnarounds - the new Berth four upper deck fingers look very narrow, especially compared to berth 3. I would have thought they would have had more - looks almost single lane wide.

    Well woke up this morning to the Mini Beast from the East... lots of snow! Missed the original beast, so was impressed to get another shot! Not often you get two lots of snow down here in the south, let alone in mid-March!Also was windy, so the sea was looking distinctly choppy, with the hovercraft mid morning for a few hours

    Ahh but if you didn't know better, it would just be Caedmon on her usual route, nothing special I'm sure I saw the AIS of the Pamela once, a few years after she was scrapped. I guess the AIS unit was saved
