In this week adventure we decided to sample the Clyde . The weather did turn out this time , calmer but still cold . We started from Gourock and headed across to Kilcreggan . Now that's a paddle . At very low tide fishing was not great to start with .

Quite an adventure :

Where's the fash!? Ha. Nice place Kilcreggan. I wanted to try fishing off the pier but they don't allow it! Thanks SPT. So we have to go to Strone or Kilmun piers instead. Only caught Mackerel in the summer though. Always a pleasure watching your videos Nicolas.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ula-class_submarine

"In recent years, several submarines of the Ula class have been deployed in the Mediterranean Sea in support of the NATO Operation Active Endeavour, where their intelligence-gathering ability surpassed expectations. Their operational availability proved to be highest of all ships taking part in the operation. This mission highlighted a need for better temperature regulation for crew comfort in warm waters. As a result, HNoMS Ula was "tropicalized" by the installation of new cooling systems, and two more of the class designated for "tropicalization".

S 301 HNoMS Utsira

The ordering of a new Norwegian submersible design stemmed from a 1972 decision to modernise the Royal Norwegian Navy (RNoN) submarine flotilla, which then consisted of the aging Kobben-class submarines. The contract was signed on 30 September 1982 for six boats with Thyssen Nordseewerke, Emden. An option for two more submarines was included in the original deal, however, it was never picked up.[4]

The construction of the vessels was an international project. The combat systems were made in Norway by Kongsberg, the attack sonar is German and the flank sonars French. The hull sections were produced in Norway and assembled in Germany by Thyssen Nordseewerke. In Germany, the design is known as the U-Boot-Klasse 210.

When commissioned, the Ulas were the first Norwegian submarines to have enough bunks for the entire crew and a shower.[1]

The Ula-class submarines are among the most silent and maneuverable submarines in the world. This, in combination with their relatively small size, makes them difficult to detect from surface vessels and ideal for operations in coastal areas. The Ula class is regarded as both the most effective and cost-effective weapons in the RNoN."

so there ya go!
