Hi guys im keen to know what your favourite ship is or has been to serve on and why?
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!

Drinking vessels are usually my favourite!
Whats the difference between Invince and a hedgehog????
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!
Turbulent or Torbay although I never had a gash mess on any boat, just some gash running.
Gleaming G!!! for favourite ship
1ltr Steiner for favourite Beer vessel and a Glencairn sniffer glass for single malt
Yarmouth 74 - 77
Nottingham 00-03 without a shadow of doubt although every ship I've had (even the 23') has been pretty good.
Turbulent without a doubt...96 through to early 99. Seriously good crew, for a seriously professional business.
HMS Coventry - mid 90s. First of her name to make it to a refit.
Pick a Type 21 - 5 drafts to 4 of 'em, all great.
Active twice so that's the winner.
Except Amazon surely!...singly the worst afloat (at that time) 1982/83
One of the 4 I didn't serve in
Fife 70-73 , good ship and crew , 60 stokers down 3Q and I do not have a bad word for any of them.
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
Was good 82-84 although some good times to 85, Cleared off for 3 months leave to Oz.
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.
Was pretty good on Global 86 once we had a change of skipper.
The first was a real short assed Napoleon complex tosser.
Separate names with a comma.
