Not that I'm saying anything, just might help with the "trawlers might seem further away than they actually are"..I'm not even mention ambush...damn, oops..

       A proper halfbaked idea! Chew on this croissant fragment.

       It hit the ship forwards didn't it? Either way, someone commands fewer submarines than they used to.

       This entire incident is worrying. According to the news, "‘Initial indications are the merchant vessel has not sustained damage", whereas the sub is going to take some serious panel-beating.   

       It strikes me that we ought to find out what they build trawlers out of, and see if we can't use it to make our new Trident subs.

       Russian submarines are difficult to ambush. According to one news article they are hiding them underwater.   

       Beep ... ping ... beep ... ping ...

       The swine ... that's cheating. Just goes to show that you can't trust foreigners.   

       No doubt the french employ the same scurvy trick ...

       People in ships and submarines should be more careful when they open the doors.

       Surely rear vision cameras are cheap and plentiful? Or even proximity warning, using something, like, oh I don't know, perhaps that newfangled sonar I keep hearing about?

       You Brits will soon be able to hide subs "underwater" as well, by slipping them into the un-used "Chunnel".

       //be able to hide subs "underwater" as well, by slipping them into the un-used "Chunnel".   

       Hmm, that would be a novel way to attack the French, some kind of collapsible conning tower, for when in the tunnel...

       Naw, it'll buff out. [+]

       I wonder as to whether Noah's ark had wing mirrors.

       I'm wondering how the sonar is going to operate when the subs traverse France. Maybe just get some trained bats?

       1. There weren't any supermarket car parks
2. There weren't any other vehicles.
3. Anyway, it probably did*, because of the bling factor.
  

       * Together with glowbug highlighting, low rider effect and extremely low profile tires.

       [+] seems to happen lots : typing "submarine trawler" into Google produced plenty of fodder.

       // submarine trawler //   

       That's an HB post, right there ... a huge (nuclear powered) submersible vessel with a retractable "gaping maw" tens of metres across that funnels fish in to a central aperture, sorts them by size and species, and releases unharmed all the unwanted ones.

       A submarine trawler would probably manage to collide with itself.
Ling, Jul 22 2016
  

       That's a good trick if you can pull it off ....
