Mate I well understand that the deck of a Carrier is an extremely dynamic and fast moving place. I am simply observing that to call any space on a Carrier deck "unusable" is a little misleading.

Considerably shorter than in recent months with respect to build news but that is because most of the blocks under construction for HMS PRINCE OF WALES have now been delivered! The ring butt welding for LB04 is approaching completion which will then allow other work to commence, and CB02g&h are approaching completion.
HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH will have her high voltage distribution system switched on at the end of September in advance of generator start-up early next year. Meanwhile there is a further one million metres of cable to install and nearly 50,000 pipes to be pressure tested . . .
