HMS Prince Of Wales sprung a big leak in it's engine room...

Really can't bang on the Brits with this one.  I don't know what the disease is that is affecting all the navies of the West but we seem to be missing a step in ship design, maintenance and perhaps even seamanship.

They'll get it fixed.  Too much money and national prestige is at stake.

So the bigger question is how do the navies of the Western world get their act together under extreme budget pressure?

Ships are seemingly costing more, are more complex, and yet at the same time more fragile. 

The sea is unforgiving and if you can't even keep the damn things painted then how can you really expect to fight a war?
