I would call 'steam gives way to sail you Muppet so shift it sharpish or call your insurance company'.

The point is it's an aircraft carrier. Ish. Carriers helicopters, which last I checked, were aircraft
By that logic a destroyer with a lynx on the back is an aircraft carrier too.

Go to the back of the class or at least don't ever go to sea with responsibility for any sort of boat.

According to The International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea 1972 (COLREGS), "a sailing vessel must give way to a vessel restricted in her ability to manoeuvre". The term “vessels restricted in their ability to manoeuvre” includes "a vessel constrained by her draft" and "a vessel engaged in the launching or recovery of aircraft".

Hold on what about hot air balloons.

Legs you're behind the times. That's the refitted 1979 Enterprise, not the current JJAbrahms 2009 version of the Enterprise. And in that alternate reality the type 45's are actually fitted with their designated weapons load, as well as photon torpedoes, phaser banks, shields and an operational cloaking device. :smile:
