Is there a neurologist in the House?

We all know that the speed of light exceeds the speed of sound by a wide margin.

Very many thanks, Stein.

Am hugely grateful. Sounds as though somebody chopped 40-odd feet off her length, as she was 176' LOA when built. And that she didn't go very far, either!

No I have not previously seen this picture of the dear old tub! Looks asthough it might be at Dartmouth, upon delivery from the builder?
