SAFETY fears have been raised after a hole was discovered in the hull of a nuclear submarine berthed in the Firth of Forth. The hole – about the size of a fist – was found during routine checks on the decommissioned sub HMS Revenge at Rosyth Dockyard. The vessel is one of seven redundant nuclear subs stored at Rosyth by the Royal Navy since the early 1980s

Of course there is a hole. you have to let the steam out . There is probably a rubber plug on a chain hanging around somewhere?

Seem to remember a certain "O" boat coming out of refit in Pompey. A year and a half later a wooden bung was found inserted in the pressure hull plugging a two inch hole. Luckily it had been inserted from outside to in! Don't you just love em.

'Microbes in the water'........it don't bare thinking about. How deep is the basin they're all in. Maybe the S boats could survive the dip but I think the Bombers may well reach collapse depth. Maybe we could give the hulks to China; then they won't have to bother snooping around and about ferreting out secrets from Western industries.
And on the subject of China...Take aways and the amount of MSG's in their scan...are we being attacked from within?
