Don't be so stupid, how would you think?
You dial 999 say "Firebrigade" and they do the rest.
What a bone question.

You put the ballast pump on line and pump from sea to foreward until you lose suction.
Being old fashioned, personally I would pump from Fwd to Sea.

Have a nice day

Unless it came through the donk shop hatch :wink: Personally I'd just throw teepol in it and then let loose the dabbers and their scotchbrites.

It doesn't mention any bleedin' windows! :lol:
You would be amazed at the number of qualified submariners who actually think the answer to that question is 'none'!

I await further discussion with interest...........

Obviously, there are 'some' windows! Shall I start with the bridge windows?
Good start. That's usually my startpoint, as it's usually a dabber officer who make the mistake of thinking there are none. That one makes them either blush and fart, or decry them as 'not really windows'.
