UK building new supercarriers

....She is being built in sections in 6 different shipyards around the UK, and being brought by barge to Rosyth for final assembly

Notice the slight differences in the latest computer rendering?

BBC News - Aircraft carrier section begins journey from Govan to Fife


Looks like an even earlier rendering, but it's a very recent article.
Britain’s Future CVF Carriers: the Queen Elizabeth Class


They were going to use the "B", but have switched to the "C" variant. EDIT: They are going back to the "B" now.
Carrier catch-up: Queen Elizabeth, Gerald Ford and the Varyag - Naval Technology
Quote:
The UK has shelved plans to switch to the F-35C variant, pictured, after the cost of fitting equipment aboard the Queen Elizabeth Class carriers rocketed. Image courtesy of Andy Wolfe.
Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quote:
The F-35 has three main models; the F-35A is a conventional takeoff and landing variant, the F-35B is a short take off and vertical-landing variant, and the F-35C is a carrier-based variant.


More info on the plane choices here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Queen_Elizabeth_(R08)

When it’s finished will be home to 40 aircraft and 700 crew
HMS Queen Elizabeth: It's taller than Nelson's Column and generates enough energy to power 5,500 homes - but does Britain really need a super-sized 3.5bn aircraft carrier? | Mail Online




Quote:
They also announced that we would no longer buy Lockheed F35B ‘Short Take-Off and Vertical Landing’ aircraft to fly from it, but instead deploy the more conventional F35C jets, which can carry more weapons and have a longer range.

Then last month the Government reversed this decision and said we would go back to the F35B planes – having discovered it would cost an additional 2 billion, and cause further delays to construction, to fit just one carrier with the catapults and arrestor gears required for the F35Cs.

Hot Tug?

I always get that confused with a Happy Ending.


HotTug

Quote:
Congratulations, you found us! The first wood-fired hot tub boat in the world!

With and without water the HotTug is an extremely stable boat for up to six to eight people. Chilling in this hot tub while cruising through canals or on a romantic lake is an amazing sensation!

In every weather condition, you can fire it up in about 2.5 hours and enjoy the 38 Celsius (100 F) warm water.

Where would you enjoy this unique HotTug experience?
