Thanks L.B. I think he might struggle to get investors when you think the problems we have preserving our own warships

I go past that twice a day on the train.

It's definitely gone a shade of red over the past year or so.

I must have a bit of a leak, as it'll gradually start listing over to about 12-15 degrees, then the next time you go past it, it's back upright, as they've pumped it out.
