    I didn't realise how scooped and fine the entry to the waterline was on the larger warships.

    HMS Queen Elizabeth in Mounts Bay, Cornwall





    PEARL HARBOR (June 8, 2018) The Republic of Korea Navy destroyer Yulgok Yi I (DDG 992) arrives at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in preparation for the ship’s participation in the Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) Exercise 2018. Twenty-six nations, 47 ships, five submarines, approximately 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California. RIMPAC is the world's largest international maritime exercise, providing a unique training opportunity while fostering and sustaining cooperative relationships between participants critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security in the world's oceans.

    I think you'll find that ships don't stop moving in all axis regardless of weight.
    Ok I derped. Much bigger ships are much better in terms of roll and yaw for your stomach. Is that better written?

    I was on 8k tonnage ships and they're literally awful. I don't really have sea sickness or motion sickness but light ships are just bleughhh inducing even in calmish weather. 15k start to be tolerable ^^

    He's not wrong. But people do get sick on anything and proper seas will make anything move.

    Try this one with 4m waves coming in straight to the starboard side while you "have too" get to a gathering of politicans 4-5 hours south (time is around 2-3 hours in normal weather). Never been so seasick in my life.



    Length: 47,5 m
    Width: 9,6 m
    Depth: 2,2 m
    Deplacement: 360 tons
    Speed: 15 knots.

    Beam seas suck.
    Minehunters have to be the worst hullform for seasickness though, they tend to way to much top weight.

    Peaceful, right?

    Now try this in 4m waves, along the beam, on the surface, in the Norgegian sea!

    At least we could sink back into the drink!

    The British Royal Navy's six Type 45 1 billion destroyers barely ever leave their docks



      Spoiler:
    The British Royal Navy's six Type 45 1 billion destroyers barely ever leave their docks

    HMS Dauntless and HMS Defender, spent no time at sea during 2017 despite it being 'year of the navy'

    The Type 45 destroyers all have engines fitted in 2008 that cut out in warm seas

    In December Britain didn't have a single ship on overseas operations anywhere
    Britain's six Type 45 destroyers, described as the backbone of the Royal Navy, spent 80 per cent of last year in dock.

    The ships, costing 1billion each, need a multi-million pound refit after repeatedly breaking down in the Persian Gulf. But the work is not due to start until 2020.

    Two of the cutting-edge warships, HMS Dauntless and HMS Defender, did not go to sea at all during 2017 which had been hailed by officials and ministers as 'the year of the Navy'. All six warships, which entered service from 2008, were made with an engine system which cuts out in warm seas, leaving sailors stranded for hours in total darkness.
    This led to fears that these key vessels designed to shield the rest of the fleet from air or missile attacks had become 'sitting ducks'. HMS Dragon spent 309 days in Portsmouth last year, followed by HMS Daring with 232 days and HMS Diamond with 203.

    HMS Duncan spent the most time at sea, but was still in dock for 197 days.

    From January to March this year, HMS Daring, HMS Dauntless and HMS Defender have not left port.

    Shockingly, engine-makers Rolls-Royce claim the Ministry of Defence did not tell them the 8,000-ton vessels would spend long periods in warm waters so they were not designed to operate in the heat.

    The absence of any of the Navy's 19 frigates and destroyers overseas was described as a 'strategic embarrassment for the country'.

    A bad few weeks for the Type 45 for sure.

    However a few months on and we have 4 at sea - NATO Flagship, FRE, Exercise Catamaran and post refit work up. One is in maintenance and the 6th is current harbour training ship.
