Lusty not well

FFS! Did she have to come up with such a sorry statement: "A Royal Navy spokeswoman said the visit to Portland was planned despite the latest mechanical problems preventing the vessel returning to sea" ? :w00t:

Tell me about it!
I feel sorry for the ME's trying to fix it, probably screaming out for parts for a bit of kit that isn't made any more :(

Or. more likely, not affordable. Not too many "bits of kit" as you describe them are never available. most bits of kit can be made to order--But at a cost. The MOD no longer has that sort of money available. They are currently engaged in a number of litigious actions that might well cost them dearly. Illustrious and other major naval units in need of that "bit of kit", sadly, will have to wait.

Would that be the Christmas Island compensation claims perchance, or the cost of researching hundreds of FOI requests from one individual?

The grey water seps are a relatively new bit of kit, and should be well supported. Too much pissing up in harbour if you ask me!

She said the fault was with the "oily water separator system", which is used to remove oil from water in the ship's bilges, before it is discharged into the sea.
She got that wrong, that should read - remove water from oil before it's returned to the sump.
She would have been right under any other government.

I had those oily water seps on my part of ship on the Ark, they are a nightmare. Salvage eductors are so much easier :thumright:

JC our Steering gear is a "Relatively New" bit of kit and is no longer properly supported ;)
A relay I ordered in 2005 won't arrive at the ship until THREE YEARS after I go outside!
