Really ? Or are they just looking for target practice ? I know the Navy like people to keep far away from their toys !

On the plus side, if it lives at the dive unit by Almondsbury can you at least park it at the front so we can all have a good drool whilst stuck in traffic ?!

I was at the nuclear submarine base the other day, very interesting all the small craft they have. Loads of Halmatics, couple of Police Deltas with twin mariners (blue clouds billowing into the distance on start up) but the most interesting things were the acks or ocks I think they're called: they're aluminium boats which look like ribs but arn't, used by the marines as a rapid response vessel in case of any threat. However, when the American war ships come in they all jump to attention and have to patrol a 3mile exculsion zone, British ships just have a few Police Seariders buzzinfg around

The Police Searider on duty as we came back in was very nice, blue tubes, mariner 90, and both crew were fully Gecko'd up.

No. Same engine still sweet as a nut. Bit quicker than my MOD colleagues and their Mariner 75,s!
