There have been a lot of favourable comments on RR about the delights of hammocks versus sleeping in bunks. I though it might be interesting to see how many would like to see hammocks restored onboard?

What sort of a sick pervert have you turned into?

What, you want to go back to things like cork insulation and smoked bacon? Grow up shippers, or get some experience. :eek: :eek: :eek:

NO, you keep the shit, it was fcuking horrible crap.
Hey man, listen to this. I remember coming off the morning watch during a gale. I rolled into the Junior Rates and picked up my platter, slurged some meat and grease out of the bacon tray, slopped some beans in place and grabbed a dry slice.

I sat at the only table that was occupied by about four other blokes (out of the entire ships company) and trapped the smallest piece of bacon I could find onto my thumb with my fore finger. Sneezing rather loudly, I displaced said piece of bacon onto the platter of the nearest hardy matelot and cleared the dining hall. I thought it was funny as **** at the time, but on reflection, well man. I learn't a very serious lesson. And serious lessons are made up of lumps and bruises. :cry:

Now rhat sounds more like it me i will vote for it.
 
You may well ask, as killick of the mess living RA in Guzz, I came onboard to be directed by the QM that I might want to get down the mess before call the hands, and sure enough there was a turtle in bed with an AB in the bottom pit, had to kick her ass out of there before she got pinged by anyone else.
With all the B&B's in Guzz I would have thought it preferable to trying to doing it in a mess with 9 other witnesses. Or maybe that was the thrill?

The old hammock had a certain feeling about it and in roughers it seemed a lot more secure than a bunk, more "navy" too. Question, is the RN hammock gone completely to the big scran-bag in the sky or is the odd one still around. Common sense says bunk but the old "mick" was the traditional sailors' bed although a problem trying to sling when full of the local brew. Even when slung, to hop in and straight out the other side was painful,
:D

Always, I think dabs put it best when he said "What sort of a sick pervert have you turned into?"

When I mentioned in an earlier post about how, every so often, you come up with something that is pure genius ... well the rest of the time you're on a completely different planet. Hammocks! - have you gone stark raving mad? Next thing you'll be asking for the return of sails, 18 month deployments and the lash!

Not getting my vote this time mate.
