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. Thanks for posting that link soleil. I'm just stunned that I don't appear to have seen either of those incidents reported in our press, or have I just missed them?

  2. Having helped bring a couple of ships out of refit, if a rudder failure is all that has happened during the trials period then they're lucky. Ships and Submarines are designed to be run, not left in a dock for 3 years "looked after" by Babcock.

  3. Helicopters, armoured vehicles and motor bikes have similar problems (although not with rudders) in my experience. I'm still surprised that it doesn't appear to have made the media here though. Ditto two nuclear armed and powered submarines crashing into each other. I'd have thought that elements of the press would have loved that.

    The bump was a while ago and made the British press BCO
  5. There may have been a little bit of banter about it on here too.........
  6. Clearly my finger is well and truly nowhere near the pulse!
  7. Considering the age of some posters here, I'm not surprised that you can't find a pulse
