I was a apprentice at Swan Hunter drydocks at Wallsend on Tyne in the late 50's and I remember the yard fitting an Inert Gas system into the British Skill and this was a retro fit, how successful the system was I do not know. I remember the funnel being cut in two vertically to allow the scrubber tower to be fitted inside the funnel.
