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. What's the big whoop, is this a spectacular skimmer achievement?

  2. Fair one my dhoby dodging friend, clearly not as good as Astute stopping in less than half a ships length by bouncing off Scotland.

    It's not really special and old matelots will have seen it all before, but it looks quite interesting to newbies.
  6. I can blackcat that, try stopping dead after running INTO Scotland (Traf, 2002 :) )

    Mighty Shar flies backwards. :)

    And turning 180 degrees (twice)

  8. Quite impressive, though Jim Startin would have done that on Diana without the tugs.:glasses8:
  9. All carriers have to do a 180 turn coming into berth at the Pool :glasses8: Remember that Capt Obrien from Hms Hermes did the most spectacular entrance , to harbour , always at speed , and doing an emergency stop, just I time . Soaking the American guard and band on the Jetty :applaud:

    Thats nothing.

    HMS Jupiter did just that without tugs. OK it hit London Bridge, but it did it a lot faster, to be fair.

  11. Is that to make sure the scallywags aren't trying to steal bits of the ship for scrap?
