Guy Griffiths - "like driving a sports car"

Running time

Our ship was very manoeuvrable. I always refer to it as rather like driving a sports car. It was great fun. It really was.

She would do over 30 knots, you see, and with her control and combustion system, you could be doing full speed ahead, you could rebound forward stern, and in just over a ship's length, she would stop doing her 30 knots ahead and go to stop and go to stern, the length of the ship. Terrific. Fantastic.
