[QUOTE=c.captain;133808]Now the Navee is getting rid of all its minesweepers which is bad but requiring all of them to be destroyed! WHY? They aren’t a combat ship and likely could be used for many other purposes creating jobs for mariners. Research, yacht, offshore guard/rescue vessel…WHAT THE FUCK!
Anyway, read through the supporting documentation in the solicitation and no loopholes. Of course, I expect no bidders to buy something they must demolish when the hulls aren’t built of a recyclable material. BULLSHIT![/QUOTE]
Does it say you have to dismantle them or is that just their suggested use because the Navee doesn’t think much of their condition? What’s to stop someone from buying the whole lot and leasing them out or selling them to such businesses as you mentioned?
[QUOTE=c.captain;133808]As a prospective bidder, I would like to know everything I can about this ship. I know she is single screw but is she CPP? What fuel capacity? What kind of steaming range?[/QUOTE]
So you are a prospective bidder after all? I’m excited now! If you get it at a half-way decent price I split it with you!
