I have seen a few of these ships built at BAE Systems on the River Clyde.
Can anyone explain why the upper decks are so sharp at the front it has always bothered me? I would think it would be a hindrance in stormy weather.

CARDIGAN BAY went out on trials last week. There is still talk of LYME BAY completing on the Clyde-sad for Swans if that is the case.

It was confirmed on Friday the 14th July that the Lyme Bay would be towed up to BAE's Govan yard for fitting out and that Swan Hunter's would lay off the remaining 300 staff and mothball the yard. End of an era for tyneside a sad day when we can't keep the yards going to keep the essential skills in ship building and maintenance going. Typical of our ever short sighted politicians. We're an island that need a Navy and a merchant marine and within 20 years we'll have neither !!!

It really does make you wonder how many times this country can keep going around in ever decreasing circles before it will eventually disappear up its own Midland Region! There must surely come a point when the whole system will collapse and we will not be able to recover the situation.

There has been a Bay class anchored off Poole/Bournemouth today, Looked like the Largs Bay but the number was not that clear. She had a largish landing craft alongside. I went back to the car for only 2 minutes at the most to get camera, got back and it had disappeared. Clockman was taking some pics and said it was just plucked out of the water and dumped on deck with one of the 2 cranes. Pretty impressive!
