It was only built in 2006? she's brand new by our standards, it would add capabilities and skill sets we for sure do not have, that said if we had it I do not know if our doctrine would utilize it correctly.

That's the small one.  The big one (USNS whatever) isn't for sale.

Maybe the Libs can make nice with Davie, who can buy it and turn it into an Interim AOR/AOPS plush cruise ship, with a non-binding agreement for a second one. Base it in Newfoundland, complete with a unionized civilian dockyard. That way, FFS can declare itself a two ocean navy that would be too politically risky for the federal government to rid itself of it. Bonus points for the Libs acquiring another ship that the RCN doesn’t need, while buying votes everywhere they didn’t really need them.

There's pictures... possibly of every engine cat makes... but none of the engine you have or any of the auxilliaries fitted to it

I did chat with a fellow who did an in-frame rebuild on a 3408, and he did mention that the manuals weren’t the friendliest.  But when they’re running/purring, it’s music.
