Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. source

    "Russia’s biggest shipyard for repairing and scrapping of nuclear powered submarines offers to scrap 11 of Her Majesty the Queens laid-up submarines"
  2. Scrap after carefully taking measurments of how quality boats are built…
  3. As if they ever would! :thumright:
  4. Hang on, read the bit at the end:- 'There the submarines (still radioactive) reactor compartment and two adjacent compartments will be sealed hermetically and remove them to a storage facility outside Russia, most likely back to Great Britain.'
    Well thats fine and dandy ain't it. They'll scrap the bit that we can already do ourseves, and send us back the bit that we don't yet know what to do with and is the reason that all the boats are stil sitting there - really usefull bit of co-operation that is - NOT!
  5. That'd be a brilliant recommendation then.
    No doubt the cheapest quote! Sometimes this 'best value' nonsense really grips!
