Actually its not as bad as it looks because its only one sheet of plywood, the side decks, bow and stern aren't affected. Perhaps two weekends work

See Skye was in the news yesterday when the Royal Navy's latest nuclear-powered submarine ran aground. Probably a few Pacific 24s buzzing around as a precaution?

Aye, MOD were going ballistic that it made the news!!!.Its hardly surprising, seen as it was nearly on the beach at the skye bridge!!, not exactly hidden away from the publics view.

Friend of mine works at the base and was about to board the sub when it hit the shingle
bank.
All hell broke loose apparently, i mean fancy doing a crew change so close inshore after high tide??.

It was also 100s of yds outside the safe channel marker buoys that are at the entrance to the bridge, another 100yds or so and would be on the rocky outcrops to the east...

Seems it was human error rather than systems failure. Hell - all you had to do was stick your head out the conning tower to see how close to shore they were. Wonder what the minimum operating depth is for that beast - 60 feet? Read she has a draught of 33 feet. Some poor bu**er is going is going to face a court-martial as a direct result.

Staggering! 1bn and they got it stuck. The Skip should be 'up the road' for that one.

It would appear the charts were out of date

You would have thought with all that kit on board they would have a working depth sounder.

Still not the first time, they parked one on Ride Sands years ago. Photos at the time showed tourists walking around it

Apparently it can circumnavigate the globe 40 times without refuelling. Obviously not a 2-stroke then!
