Elephant's Trunk

To enable us to launch the ALB from inside the boathouse we need some way of getting the exhaust fumes from within to without. To this end we have this elephant's trunk arrangement. It is supposed to seal onto the exhausts (there are two) and direct the fumes outside the boathouse.........they don't, even with them connected the boathouse is soon filled with noxious fumes leaving the crew struggling to breath and feeling distinctly nauseous.

As they say, if you can't take a joke you shouldn't have joined.......
