Hi there, my girlfriend was doing a little bit of her own research into the Navy and what it means for her/us and came across the Live Chat with Cdr Ryan Ramsey CO of HMS Turbulent. All was well until she came across this particular Q&A: I have to be honest I was a little surprised at the answer. So my question is: Is it the boat itself that spends 60% of it's life at sea and it has a rotational crew (similar to that of the Bombers) or is it just the one crew that spends 7.2 months of the year at sea? A speedy response would be much appreciated as I need as much info as possible to arm myself for the inevitable onslaught! Cheers!
