Ironically enough, the follow-on sister ship to the UK CV QE, is the Prince of Wales.   I kinda wonder how many ships prior to full service activation during their trial periods experience shaft seal leaks (particularly after their initial shock trials)?

I fully expect the British press to freak out over this and call the entire class a waste of money better spent on some boondoggle not related to the national defense but trials are supposed to uncover problems and to be fair I don't think the British shipbuilding industry has had a project on this scale for a long long time.

200L (52.83gal US/43.99gal UK) per hour is nothing, that’s less than your average kitchen or bath tap.

 

Or put it another way if everyone left the ship for 365 days and the bilge pumps were turned off and the ship was in saltwater, it would in that time take-on just ~1,796 tonnes (*) of seawater on a ship with a displacement 70,600 tonnes and buoyancy reserves significantly beyond that.

 

(*) the spelling “tonnes” denotes metric 1000kg tonne.

Your kitchen leaks 200L per hour?  Man, your water bill must SUCK.

No, as in comparison to turning on an average kitchen or bathroom tap.

 

As for my water bill, if I did have a tap that was leaking 200L per hour, my bill would not change, as I am charged a fixed amount per quarter for water, as I don’t have a water meter! ;)

Shaft seals leak all the time, this is a non-issue.

This.

Mountains out of molehills, people, just another tempest in a teacup.
