    Do not be alarmed this is not an MOD RSS thread.

    It's the BBC article about the stormy weather last night but this excerpt made me smile.

    That’s a polite way of saying they were barfing up all over the ship. ;-)

    Thank Mithras I’m a land lubber.
  2. Meh.

    Do it in a Minehunter, and then spin a dit about it. It's a good combat indicator to go to anchor when civvy VLCC's start dropping their picks'.....
  3. I thought that was what the Navy do? Sit on the sea come hell and high seas.

    It is indeed what we do, shipping it green over the bridge and down the funnel. That's why the 'dangers of the sea' are prioritised above 'the violence of the enemy' in the naval prayer. And why if you can't take a joke you shouldn't sign on.
