    were not needed or used till it entered the dock area iirc the ark used to button them on just before the entrance to the base i recall watching the old ark being spun 180 inside the base while that wasn't surprising .. the 2 or 3 paddle wheel tugs they were using was a bit of a jaw dropper i was also surprised they didn't fit them with bow thrusters ( that i could find ) and the amount of rust they have allowed to build up on the sides .. the RN ships used to usually show a few rust streaks but not that bad

    seems a strange place to have a tug buttoned on already not to mention the 2 on standby anything wrong with the british engineering ?

    i dont fault them for that i fault them for the implementation of the systems they worked out to use if you liken it to civil defence exercises you can get an idea of what your asking .. in that civil defence exercises all train for a well know well worked out response to a limited set of circumstances ... it never actually happens anything like they have trained for ( and so generously patted themselves on the back for ) .. so they try to make the situation fit the plan thats just kindergarten thinking and never works well being flexible enough to come up with the best responses on the fly is far better training and requires a completely different mindset and skill set they don't have many if any in those positions capable of doing that so i was ( pleasantly ) surprised they got most of the medical response right .. legal or not

    Corona Virus

    there are a lot of swede's lifting their hats .. it's called a funeral and you can put any name or qualification to a plan .. if it's wrong .. it's wrong there is also the long term cost ( medically ) of those that contracted covid and recovered .. some of the permanent damage will never go and their life expectancy has gone down not all of the hidden long term effects are known as yet .. those that are dont make good reading

    outcome still pending .. australia has been incredibly lucky in regards to deaths vs response used .. following them does not mean you would be as lucky a lot of that went to the tourism industry .. thats pretty much tanked everywhere

    back ground sweden has just over 10 mill population nz just over 5 mill so almost exactly double our 20 deaths would be over 2,500 if we had the same approach as sweden and still rising ( sweden currently at 5,370 ) your whole argument seems to be based on one premise ' money is the only thing that has value ' mine is slightly different ' money is the only thing that has no value '

    they still had to pay the wages training, building and most of the design and development would have slowed down or stopped completely so a loss

    even that would be at the bottom end of usable 27 mins hover time so at best 10 at full speed take 2 each way to get out and back if its close enough maybe 5 mins on task for 6k

    Corona Virus

    i thought the basis of good animal husbandry is ... you find an uncontrolled unidentified outbreak you stop all movement onto and off farms you test all the farms that have it all the farms that may have it you trace all movements you can you set in place procedures to accurately trace all movements you test the ones that want to move until you can guarantee all outbreaks are known and contained this is pretty much what we did and are doing and the same problems with covid as with a recent outbreak on farms here no i didn't move any ohh well i only moved some i knew were not infected ohh i forgot i brought those from there ohh i didn't think ...

    there isn't many drones that can do 50kts and even less with the endurance to do it for very long so your looking at the cost of a big fast commercial and they are not cheap
