      You may be cool but you'll never be Navy Seal surfing on a nuclear submarine cool!

        Usually, the grill would get broken out for the full-day transit of the Panama Canal. Ours was the standard half 55-gal. drum. A pain to get in and out of standard hatches on the older boats!

            Some shots of HMS Vanguard returning to Falsane on 11 Sep 2023 after 200+ days on patrol. Pics of the boat being cleaned will be even better!

              200 days? That's a really long patrol! I would have assumed that the Royal Navy had a tempo closer to 3 months than 6.

                "Algae require warmth, sunlight, and nutrients to grow and reproduce, so they live in the upper 60 to 90 meters (200 to 300 feet)"

                So she spent most of her time at that depth.
