Project 54 has been a complete disaster - ask anyone who has worked on it. Overtime & over budget, just like everything else they do.
Overtime and over budget do not a disaster make, how many times did the requirement/ specification change post the design phase? The only real test is whether the product meets customer satisfaction and expectation, the quality aspect of the project management triangle. Remember Heathrow Terminal 5 was one of the most successful construction projects undertaken in this country for years, until it was handed over to the operators!

Couldn't have been that bad or he wouldn't have come back and ordered another one.

Reminds me of the Mermaid, originaly ordered by President Nkrumah of Ghana as his Presidential yacht, during build he was overthrown and the new government canceled the order....hmm , what do we do with it, I know let's stick a WW2 4inch gun on the sharp end and a triple mortar in the orchestra pit ( I kid you not ) at the rear of the flight deck ( no helo embarked ) and call it a GP frigate.
That 4 inch turned out to be the most accurate gun in the fleet . :thumright:
