Another Canadian Sub Fire

News from Canada tonight about a small electrical fire aboard HMCS Windsor, sister ship to HMCS Chicoutimi, which suffered a serious fire last year. It appears that this fire on the Windsor, which occurred when the boat was submerged, was much less serious and was put out quickly. Without the previous fire aboard Chicoutimi, it likely wouldn't have even made the news.

Due to questions about the safety of the other three ships of the Canadian fleet, HMCS Windsor is currently their only operational boat. I'll be watching to see if Canadian sub-blogger drunknsubmrnr comes up with some more information.

Staying at PD...

Have I mentioned lately that Canada has the world's longest coastline?

I actually knew that, but it's mostly inhabited by polar bears...

Yeah, like the polar bears are going to make up an integrated defense strategy!

Although it would make an interesting Pixar movie...

Don't see why not... they're quite ferocious... one of the only animals that will stalk man (other than kittens, of course...)

I was on Connecticut, and that's why I know how dangerous polar bears can be...
