  4. Funny you should say that, we are taking over quite a lot of Ark's program ;)
  5. G'day Chicogiz.

    I got quite excited there, for a minute I thought that it was the old Ocean that was going to be turned into a Museum or something, until I remember I was on her last cruise and paid her off in 1957/8, and even the razor blades will all have been used up at least forty five years ago.

    Yes I'm a silly Old Barsteward.

    regards pingbosun.

    Well thats "Op persian gulf" shelved for a few months.
  7. My old ship in dry dock never!

    My pals are on there, no wonder theyve managed to wing so much time off!
  8. Aparently its NOT going in to dry dock...
  9. Apparently they will be upgrading the EMF accom! they have only been promising that since 99! Better late than never. Hopefully they will remove all the chains from the hangar and kill that bloody alarm on the lifts so the ASRM can actually sleep at night. The amount of times i was woken up by the weak Air Dept dragging their bloody chains along the deck because they did not have the strength to carry them!!! :pissedoff:
  10. Are you sure it wasn't their knuckles mate??
  11. They are also improveing the bunk spaces so ive heard.
  12. mmmm! Good point, well presented that man!
  13. Yes it is - as soon as a certain SSN vacates it - maybe December maybe January.
