So.... the boffins dried the wood out and now its changed shape...... and they didn't expect this ????? REALLY ????? there is a reason old wooden boats are best kept wet and that is if they are allowed to dry out too much the wood shrinks.


I knew that and I am a "dumb-coff" from Shields.

Interesting to read he'd like to survey HMS Barham, my fathers uncle was taken off that just before she blew apart, can't imagine much to see.

Saw that - the do-gooders plan to save the planet with hopeless electric cars by smashing up hydrothermal vents. Shame shrimps and jellyfish aren't as cute as Snow Leopards.
