Thread Name: Gold.Vanity. Can you REALLY sink a ship?
Subject: RE: Gold.Vanity. Can you REALLY sink a ship?
And if the ship's bottom was coppered?

But if there was a place were such drilling would do more damage, such as in an area where damage was already sustained....

It always seemed to me to be a silly way to win a girl anyway. Poor little chap didn't listen to enough songs and stories dealing with the perfidy of those in command.

"Hey, if any of you guys want to jump overboard, swim to that enemy ship, drill a bunch of holes with your little boring tools and sink her, I'll give you my daughter."

"Bugger off, I've SEEN your daughter."
