Destroyer are small, we all know

but despite how small it is, it have to accommodate 200+ crew

let see how their living in there

 

P.S. USS saufley is one of fletcher class destroyer

 

no wonder why this is confidential, it would discourage people to apply to navy :D

the commentary voice is kinda funny too.

I love this VID. I always watch similar vids to get a glimpse on how "Destroyer" men lived during wartime.
A Fletcher class DD is 115M
An Atlanta class CL is 165M
An Oliver Hazard Perry Class Frigate is 132M
A modern Arleigh Burke class DD is 154M

So nowadays, DD's are a few meters shy of WW CL lengths.  They are almost as wide.  This makes for better handling in rough seas and more comfort for the sailors during patrols.  Still, im sure it would be cool to be part of that WW2 Era when the Fletcher was State of the Art and rather LARGE for its class of ship.

Schellboot isn't a ship, it's a boat.

A boat is any vessel that be taken aboard a ship. That's the difference. The size makes the meaning.

If a vessel (a word that means both boat and ship) cannot be loaded onto a ship, then that said vessel is a ship. Hope that made sense.

Old saying- a boat is what you get into when your ship sinks....

 

house is the structure, home is the location. A person may live in a cave/ tent/ cardboard box - that's his home, but none of them are a house.

 

and you're right about the DD. They were originally made to counter torpedo boats.

Now we are arguing over ships and boats? So we have time to actually think about proper terms instead of just rubbing them "loli-botes"?
