Submariner quiery?

#1
Hello All,

I have heard varying things on the amount of time submariners spend at sea? I have been told by an navy reservist that they do 3 months assigned to the bout 3 months stand by then 3 months off but would like clarification as I cant see the 3 months off being very likely :p

Depends on the type of running the Boat does could be day running (in and out of port every couple of days, trials, work up etc.) Weeks or months + if deployed to the far flung.

Could be along side for acouple of hours (for stores or people transfer) Days or months (maintainance) acouple of years or so for refit.

Everyones different could be any or all of the above.

Sounds like your reservist is describing the patrol cycle for the 2 crew bombers.

Doesn't happen like that on SSN's. What's the reservist submarine experience?

Don't recall ever seeing a skipper onboard for 3 years non stop. 18 months to 2 years max I reckon, then, onwards and upwards!
