With the 2011 season starting to get underway here, there is an important question to be asked: how fares the fleet? For me: Suffren: Repatched and hull paint touched up around patches. Fully operational and ready to be returned to Phill for a new captain. Maru: Patched but lacking in the new paint department. Scheduled to have the balsa stripped off and reskinned in May. Fully operational. Orfey - On hold indefinately while other projects are worked on. Derf! - Nearing a stage for initial seatrials, the hope is to be combat ready by end of May. No new ships are currently planned for construction as the admiral has banned further expansion of the dockyard at this time.
