    Yeah, right. A 15 inch (in old money) belt at the water line is heavily armoured. This thing is made of relative tin foil.

    I have no problems with this sort of enterprise by ex RN / RM but the OOD wants reaming, upper deck WTD open and no ensigns. Tsk.

    Pair found guilty of entering Senegal illegally after converted warship was seized

    Two men have been found guilty of entering Senegal illegally after their converted warship was seized by marine commandos off the West African country.

    Skipper Chris Enmarch, 53, from Penryn was handed a six-month suspended sentence while Saltash man Andrew Bayliss, who crewed on the decommissioned Defender, received a one-month suspended jail term at Dakar Criminal Court earlier this month.

    Enmarch, an ex-Royal Navy submarine engineer, was also convicted for operating a vessel without a licence, failing to keep an official ship's log, and for illegal possession of a weapon.
