Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... even a small fast patrol boat with the beam and length is too tall to fit in the well ... a patrol boat mothership/tender would not have a hanger deck above its well.

And of course rather than try to fit a patrol boat into the procrustean bed of a landing craft envelope, it is more frugal in the end to design the patrol boat mothership/tender around the patrol boats a country has.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
