    Having been stripped of anything useful enough to be used in the refit with the new hull, it is now my sad duty to inform you that the original USS SN-671 Dragonfish is no more. She was finally scrapped today in the Polegate Ship Breaking Yard (AKA my kitchen rubbish bin) after a short but fruitful operational life, consisting of only three active patrols.

    There were no casualties, and the whole operation was performed in a dignified and serene manner to the strains of her skipper's favourite piece of music, Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb".

    May she now rest in pieces...


    Gentlemen, raise your glasses...the toast is: The USS Dragonfish.

    But fear not...like the mythical Phoenix, the Dragonfish will live on, with a new hull, new wtc, and when prospective son in law stops making babies, a fresh paint job in an experimental Arctic Patrol colour scheme will be applied.

    Long live the USS SN-671 Dragonfish!
