Thanks Cody

LIke all my photos of Navy ships away from a berth, this one happened when she sailed past when I was waiting for another (scheduled) ship.

The morale thing is a worry, but the Navy chiefs seem to be aware of it and are throwing money and better thinking at it.

Nice shot Clyde! Perfect lighting and colours

Our subs are supposed to be the quietest in the world, but with 3 out of our 6 subs in dry dock due to problems and crew moral at an all time low (37% of the crew on Waller think the job is meaningless) so perhaps the navy should work on the crews moral insted of the subs, sub are useless without a happy crew.
