    A fantastic NAV that ever was. Most of the youngsters wouldn't be familiar with Sub LT Phillips.

    Now as we all know the P60 class are a 90m design (Power driven vessel >50m) but where is the 2nd masthead light? I only see 1 masthead, a sidelight and a stern light. Or is Rule 23 different for Naval vessels? (Colregs 95 etc).

    I'm certain that the patrol vessels comply with International Col. Regs. P31's Draft looks interesting and the shallowest I've ever seen, in FW, up at Albert Quay. Her GM must be small enough to take home in your pocket??

    It looks like P51 is home since the weekend. I wonder why no sea trials, and why tugs. Nice to see her back but what about the propulsion.

    She isnt finished, there is more work to be done on her in the basin.
    There was a tender in recently for I think a new galley.
    Better to leave any trials till after all new plant is fitted.

    This one I think. Niamh has hers further forward, on the opposite side.

    Be careful about galleys on ships. They need access to discharge grey water from the Galley sinks, which means port or starboard side location but the galley cooker can weigh a few tonnes and has to be compensated for elsewhere on the ship. Irrespective of internal work, a long lay up requires the engines and propulsion to be run up on Harbour trials, followed up by adjustments and full sea trials, all to validate work done and paid for by way of guarantee.

    Just to clarify about initial fitting out of the galley. The cooker, because it is so large and heavy, it is put in place early in construction before the upper accommodation unit is added and welded up. If that unit weighs 5 tonnes and it is to port, then you must offset it with a similar permanent weight to starboard, otherwise you would have a permanent list OR have to allow for it with liquids.

    Surely same would apply for any domestic machinery below deck? From memory Food stores and fridges are aft of Galley, OR & SR mess are opposite, and Wardroom is above (via dumb waiter). Aft of OR & SR Mess is heads and Laundry.
    Though I could be mistaken. Hopefully a more recent visitor can confirm.

    Just pointing out that it is not easy to shift a galley on an existing ship without considering stability.

    From memory, all that is above the Galley on Roisin is open deck so access is easier than most spaces for getting things in and out quickly. You just need to cut some deck plate..

    This is a fantastic sequence of tweets, where HMS Tyne carried out a RAS exercise with L.E. George Bernard Shaw. More of this sort of thing please.

    Agree. Training and inter-operating with other navies brings skills and knowledge. Nice to see Tyne recovered from the MOD dustbin, recommissioned and performing with zeal and some pride. Our lads doing well.

    I notice a few comments from the other side of the pond asking "How come our similar sized vessels are so lightly armed?"
