Ship's Integrated Navigation System (S.I.N.S.) or as we in the trade call it "the Tom Tom oot the car".Lying at anchor in Charlie's Bay a few miles North East of Oban one night a couple of weeks ago and was testing it out...worked fine...would have been nice if the icon had been a wee boat,but ye cannae have it all ways I suppose.

    Aye Barry,a billion pounds worth of hi-tech gear aboard yon sub and still she gets her ar*e felt on the putty...if he had just gone to Argos and spent a hundred quid like me he could have saved himself a lot of bother :laugh:
    MOD/HM Government cuts - use of Tom Tom's for navigational purposes - no wonder Astute ran aground  :laugh:
