Personally, it was something that was put at the back of my mind.Agree, is that something as a sundodger you ever think about or just put to the back of your mind?
Concur! When I was on her, when 'deep' there was space to pass a football between a stanchion and a ladder down on 3 deck! Amazing to see.Swiftsure, first of the "deep divers" had the bulkheads, messes and spaces etc. rigidly connected to the deckhead as well as the decks. When we did a deep dive the bulkheads would bow about 9". There was a gap between the galley and the gash ejector space that you could fit your head through. It didn't seem to bother anyone else so I took it as the norm so it didn't bother me. Later S Boats the they were only conected to the decks and didn't bow.
Sovereign JR's mess bulkhead (the Formica on) used to bow out in to 2 deck, as did the bulkhead by the garbo, as described previously. Certainly had to make sure all the doors on 2 deck were open.Concur! When I was on her, when 'deep' there was space to pass a football between a stanchion and a ladder down on 3 deck! Amazing to see.
