But are they going to continue to do fish? Like I said ive heard rumours that DEFRA wont continue the contract.They've been toying with the idea for a while with the current ships but keep running into the obvious problems that they'd be sending a commerical ship into dangerous waters and that they're obligated to keep them in British waters to do Fish.
And I wouldn't fit a sonar to the bugges. they're steel and lots of it.
Incidentally, anyone at DSEi this year could have had a tour of a very fine OPV that the Dutch are using. Well designed, simply and efficiently equipped, lean-manned and with lots of extra space to play with. I wonder if anyone in the RN got a tour...
