Having spoken to two ex ship superintendents I am told by both of them that the above statement is complete and utter nonsense. One stating 98% of the ships he was ever involved with can ALL be laid up on a dry berth no matter what they are carrying. Ships can also be built to any specification. Slightly off topic buy still relevant is seeing as jersey utilizes the boat why is it that guernsey paid for it? Could it not have been a joint venture? Of course out incompetent states members know more about shipping than 2 very qualified marine superintendents with a hundred years of experience between them.
