Virtually a new ship. All of that is consequent on hull areas having to be strengthened or cut out and replaced. When all is done I hope they carry out an Initial Stability Test to see if her start point for Stability is " as built " in the UK.

    I was aboard Eithne during one of her refits. Quite intimidating to see the majority of internal spaces back to the bare metal. They also took the opportunity to abrasive blast her superstructure, and in doing so, (removing 30 years worth of paint) probably got her sitting a few marks higher in the water.
    Since Construction P51 has gained mounts for secondary armament quite high above the CG. For such a squat profile it was an interesting decision.
