favourite Vessel?

Discussion in 'The Quarterdeck' started by matt93, Aug 18, 2014.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi guys im keen to know what your favourite ship is or has been to serve on and why?
  2. Lusty all the way

    Why? Invince was a shithole, Ark smelt of polish and paint. Lusty was a happy medium

    And not this happy medium!

    My best ship ... Manchester. Happiest ship I was ever on ... and yes for a Doc I did go to sea not just on the IOW ferry!

  9. Nottingham 00-03 without a shadow of doubt although every ship I've had (even the 23') has been pretty good.

  10. Turbulent without a doubt...96 through to early 99. Seriously good crew, for a seriously professional business.

  12. Pick a Type 21 - 5 drafts to 4 of 'em, all great.
    Active twice so that's the winner.

    This has been done before...mine was HMS Cavalier 57-59. My first time in the Far East. An H bomb test and runs ashore at so many wonderful places that I'll never forget. Can I go back and do it all again please ? lol

  18. Was good 82-84 although some good times to 85, Cleared off for 3 months leave to Oz.
  19. Same here for 21s.
    You got me beat mind you. Just the 3 for myself.
    Active, Amazon and Alacrity.

    Would have to vote for Alacrity as the best draft. As a PO Chippie it was the dogs. Great mess great runs ashore.
    Plus less shit as a SR.

  20. Was pretty good on Global 86 once we had a change of skipper.
    The first was a real short assed Napoleon complex tosser.

    Ellis iirc.
