Fender Bender - RCN style
« on: February 14, 2012, 05:46:29 AM »
The Royal Canadian Navy is calling this damage its version of a fender bender. I wonder what the sailors that were on HMCS Corner Brook call it.

I think she's cooked, dude ! I suspect they probably save some parts for spares but officially announce that she will be scrapped.

OK... your first mistake was actually relying on CBC for a defence story.... your second mistake was waiting to hear what the response was from the DND.
My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

My wife insists that it says dyslexia but what does she know.

I don't think that I could ever serve on a Canadian sub (beyond the fact that I probably couldn't get my fatass through the hatch!)!!!
