I am sure that they can retrained in a couple of weeks,it's a well known fact that submariners can multi-task with ease.

All matelots are Reactor Watchkeeping trained. How else do you explain Jacks propensity for disappearing just before his misses finds out the truth.

I wouldn’t go back, I’ve seen the pics of today’s boats, all computer screens and keyboards, if you’re down at 300 ft and the flood alarm is screaming its tits off, I want see bodies rushing to the rescue not some nerd pressing control, alt, delete over and over.

That's just the control room, it's all for the dabber stuff. The rest of it ain't changed that much (and you mean 100m ^_~).

Seen this on google, but rather than double posting has a brief scroll through here. Does this mean that MESM's will have a fast promotion pace, or will they just be promoted at the same pace as other branches?

On standby should the computers crash,



Call me old fashioned, but personally I always liked to see a calm professional approach where the flood is identified and the correct EOP actions implemented.
