That's great news for Scotland. It's just a shame that their industries have been run down over the years. Along with Liverpool, they were probably the best ship builders in the World.

Let's hope they fit the ships with engines that even work in warm weather this time...

And all the bolts glued in the right places.......

Since the government requires all warships to be built in this country, choice is limited. Until the National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSbS), formally adopted by government in 2017, shows some results, BAES will remain the only real option for complex warship construction. The SSRO (Single Source Regulations Office) now restricts profits to 8% on uncontested projects, but*there is a widespread perception that BAES does well for itself while not always delivering high-quality products.*HMS Forth, the first of the Batch 2 River-class, was handed over to the Navy by BAES with a half-functioning electrical system and*snapped bolt heads glued onto the*ship. This*suggests a degree of complacency from an organisation lacking competitors. The actions of a few individual workers are not necessarily reflective of an entire companyís work ethic, but itís still disappointing from a yard with so much responsibility.
