  • All motorways lead to Dublin, that's why. Dun Laoighre closed because the M50 didn't go there.

      And because Dun Laoghaire (town) traffic is heavily congested as is. The area is really unsuitable for 40ft trucks

            Listened to it earlier, the interviewee has an interesting story of his career path so far, before you even get in to the very interesting details of P51's mid life refit.
            SPOILER: They had to remove the funnel to replace the exhaust system.

              Sounds like someone who is planning an exit in the near future or maybe not, maybe feathering the nest for promotion but large responsibility for a Lt (army Capt) and seems to easliy have completed the task.

              • From ship maintenance/design being a Naval Architect and Marine Engineer makes him uniquely qualified to refit any ship. Cruise experience gives time under pressure whereby the ship must sail as per cruise timetable and all systems on board must work. Create an appointment of Nav. Arch. Dockyard and give him the job .Pitch it at Comdr. Rank with 2 years as Lt. Cdr.

                • How long do you think it would take to create such a post? Does it exist in other navies or is it farmed out to contractors?

                    In my time, in the civilian section of the Naval Dockyard, we had a Nav. Arch. draftsman who produced drawings for alterations, repairs, and big additions like the covered in bridges on the "Ton" class CMS's. We lack in house skill for applying rules and designing to rules and passing builders design drawings by an approved Naval Architect. It could be done overnight, starting at degree entry rank and guarantee promotion to Lieut. Commander rank after x years and open to higher rank thereafter when selected. It would add another incentive to re-open our big Drydock. Afaik other Navies do have Naval Arch. Some may be civilians and I'm not certain of the Naval interface except to say the RN have a unit titled Royal Corps of Naval Constructors which has about 100 officer architects. They wear uniform and are in Bands1 to 4. Band1 Architects wear Naval Captain's Rank, Colonel equivalent.
