    These electric Azipod stern-drive motors have been problematic from the outset.
    Several cruise ships e.g Norwegian Star, had to be towed back to port well before Adelaide & Canberra were even built !

    If the navy gave out proper info on what was going on with the LHDs, then the media would not have to try and figure it out. The stories i have heard seem true anyway. The ships are busted, trials or no trials.

      Amen Mark.
      Of course, they wouldn’t need sea trials if there wasn’t something wrong – and certainly wouldn’t need dry-docking, which is no small chore for a 28,000 tonne ship!
