  4. So did the accident damage assessor agree the claim or was the vehicle written off?!!!!!!!:laughing5:
  5. Does the skipper get a S126, to cover the insurance excess?
  6. Dunno!!! Bet it's fucked his NCD though!!!!
  7. As it had just had a refit they did a cut and shut with one just going in to refit, USS Honolulu, I think, which was then laid up.
  8. .

    Did the RN or French ever release any pics of the damage to their SSBNs which touched ?
  9. I would love to be a submariner in a close team well away from all the hassle and strife of back home.
  10. It's ferkin' ace ;) Her problems are, well, her problems.
  11. Better, much better!!
  12. It's amazing how they survive without their man to be whinged and moaned at.
  13. No they just store all the winging and moaning for when you get home, and oh did we get it if something went pair shape that you were supposed to sort out, well in their mind anyway, as they probably forgot to mention it. One of the main reasons you need to marry a strong woman as a matelot, the down side is they always think they are the boss and need careful training.
