was away sailing with some mates at the weekend and the subject of drum and her various escapades came up.



One was that she hit a submarine whilst sailing up in scotland, which was a new one on me.

your right! a quick search on here produced this from P Wop


There was indeed. Ask The Fish about that one.

The midnight offender was a British diesel-electric boat, HMS Otus, at periscope/snorkel depth just off the Mull of Kintyre, but he wasn't looking out of the window.

I still have a chunk of anechoic tile sitting on my desk, and the custom-made commemorative rugby shirt.

We wuz lucky boyz. Gavin McKinnon heard faint noises of a diesel engine, and went up the foredeck to the headstay to look behind the genoa to see if he could spot a presumed fishing boat. Only to see masts (periscope & snorkel) churning towards us with a frothing bow wave, all lit up in the glow of our bow nav lights. He came cantering back the foredeck screaming to The Fish "Up,up, up...."

Hit on the port bow about 1/2 way back, slid along the gunnels ripping out stanchions etc., then fetched up with a mighty bang on the capshrouds before slithering into the night.

If Fish hadn't put the helm down at once, we'd have hit head-on, and well.... no keel, instant Drum-roll, no distress call, cold Scottish water, and no Fish, no yours truly and no 20 other guys.

The RN coughed up though - admitted 100% liability. I insisted to the Admiral who came aboard afterwards in Crinan that it's all about keeping a proper lookout. So that's your answer

Hi ecosse, thanks for the heads-up on this nice event. Do you know if she has hit the water yet?
