The floating store off to sea. It is Independence Day in the states. If she comes to our port, we will have to sneak aboard and toss any tea in the ocean ;-)

careful now, it's the military, they could be parachuting onto your rooftop as we speak. ;-)

I saw her in early april tied up at Knock Dhu terminal when I took a drive round there.
What is her job with the navy? Anybody know?
