You’re right, that was uncalled for and I apologize unreservedly. And thank you for the missing piece of why ships are corroding to badly. Hopefully the CSC will take measures to mitigate this problem.
FYI, I’m a retired 1st class engineer (transport Canada), just so you know point of view, and I assume that most people aren’t idiots. And in the BC Ferry service we had a highly motivated, intelligent group.
Ferry runs every for 52 years through the high seas every day. Frigates don’tt do that. Structurally they fine The problem isn’t time but spare parts and hopefully not some piss poor fire procedures and training.
Our frigates are fine. They’re ridden hard but less so than the American or British. They receive regular maintenance, including dry dock. They just look like crap. Ferries ride through horrifying seas for fifty years and don’t have their keels weaken.
The CCG Harry Dewolf class were never ordered. They’re planned. That’s a huge difference. COVID 19 also slowed down the progress of the AOPS so there is that.
