I plead the 5th!!No - that is why they invented Duck Tape. Used during the jury rigging or the connector for the carbon dioxide scrubbers during the Apollo 13 mission, and some bloke told me RFA ships are held together with it. @instinct may disagree but it was a long time ago.
It even has medical uses - but not for a burnt dick.
The great saving grace of this incident is that no lives were lost. The US Navy and the US nation can replace a ship, but a family cannot replace their loved ones.
Looks like the US Navy thinks along the same lines as the RN. The ship is burnt out and being decommissioned, but give it a few coats of paint to look good for the ceremony and before she goes to the breakers yard!The USS Bonhomme Richard was officially decommissioned today.
