I like to fill my bath up with water, then turn the shower on and act like I'm in a submarine that's been hit.

Do you 'drive' a submarine or is there a more accurate term?

It doesn't sound right.

Mate of mine was radio operator on H.M.S. Conqueror. He reckons he took the message from Thatcher to sink the Belgrano.

Ive 'driven' several submaines before, without windows too...

"Mate of mine was radio operator on H.M.S. Conqueror. He reckons he took the message from Thatcher to sink the Belgrano."

Not saying he wasnt on there but if everyone ive heard of saying they were on there actually was on there, theyd have needed a submarine 3 times bigger than what it was...

heard loads of stories about those saying they pressed the fire buton too, wouyld have resulted in about 40 torpedoes being fired...

i would've thought you 'pilot' a submarine rather than drive or sail

i know it sounds more "aeroplane-y" but there are some weird quirks like that

why is a consignment sent by ship referred to as cargo, but a consignment sent by car referred to as a shipment?

the helmsman steers the submarine on orders from the OOW and ship controller...

on the class i steered, the Helm controlled direction and pitch (bow up or down) of the boat, also depth via the aft planes and rudder, we had a fore planes operator that fine controlled the depth of the boat...

The ship controller commanded the 'front row' team of fore plane, aft planes and panel operator, the panel operator opened and closed valves to pump and flood water in/out the boat to change its bouyancy to help depth keeping, he alo trimmed water fwd/aft to help maintain a steady pitch. He also controlled the HP air used for surfacing the boat and opening the ballat tank valves to allow air out to dive the boat...

Its all a complex operation controlled byt the OOW via the ship controller

I had a second hand one. Absolute rubbish it was. Had to scrap it after six months.

Sorry - thinking about it, it was a Subaru.

Wouldn't one guide a submarine?! Or is that a torpedo.

Incidentally, I always thought Torpedo Moscow was the greatest name for a football team, ever!

It was one of the best threads ever that one by FortyHorse! I'd love to know what happened to old NedKat. The last I remember he had moved from Florida to Nerja in Spain, but that was years ago.
