Can you take a laptop on a boat?

Be careful when your charging it aboard; shipboard electricity can flutuate in amperage. A spike protector would help. You might be better off with old fashioned books.
The frequency is 60 Hz so it pushes 20% more apparent power through and the Voltage may vary. Most chargers can cope read the label.

I took the question seriously, am I an idiot? No I'm not. I took 10 seconds of my time to answer the guy, which is about the same amount of time it probably took you to insult him. I know which of the two options I think is the most idiotic.
Just because the question may seem stupid to a cantankerous old twat doesn't mean it wasn't a serious question. The guy has never been on a submarine and had a question. If you're unsure of something the sensible thing to do is ask. Just make sure you don't ask a tool.

It would appear from your response that the cap fits.

Seems a reasonable question to me. You can use them for downloaded books and also studying etc.
Have they put the Part 3 manual or other training books on PDF yet? Wouldn't be a bad idea to save a little space and getting them lost etc.

It would appear to be the case that some must have led a very sheltered life in HM Forces as they do not seem to know when they are having their strings jerked.

A netbook would be more appropriate (size-wise). Just fill it with as much porn as you can possibly download and cover the screen with clingfilm.In my day we didn't have lap-tops....didn't have computers, except something called a D.C.B. and THAT was fu**ing ENORMOUS and would only fit in the Control Room. We entertained ourselves with T.A.B's, B.S.Q's, Scotchbrites, damp cloths and quite a lot of masturbation. As far as I know,you don't have your own plug hole, so charging it up may be a problem and there's NO WAY they'll let you leave it in a compartment such as W/T - Sonar - E.W. or any other place come to think of it....security and such...y'know.

Actually, (pedantic mode ON) DCB lived in the Computer Room, which was the compartment aft of the Sonar Cab Space on 2 deck and opposite the galley. The Fire Control consoles in the Control Room were merely the displays from DCB. But hey ho! (pedantic mode OFF).

(What does pedantic mean?). All I remember is that it was big, and that I was a fu**ing dab hand with a "Light Pen" a fu**ing long timebefore Darth fu**ing Vader was issued with a bigger version!
