what are you on about?
I thought the grey funnel (do you mean 'line'?) did have lady sailors onboard?
We are talking Astute class submarines here mup.
Submarines, you know those long black electronically filled sea going sewer pipe thingies. :roll: :oops: :roll:
Revs for 28 knots, 57 down keep 14,000 metres
