Which is why I believe we need at least some modern diesel boats...far cheaper to build, easier to man, and could relieve nucs in territorial waters.
I'm sure I'll be ridiculed for this but I believe we need at least two or more conventional CV's as well. Nukes have their indisputable advantages but so does conventional. Conventional Plants offers a quicker training & qualification timeframe & for the Propulsion crew. You can take a guy out of Basic and put him in The Hole no schools needed. It's OJT for a lot of guys.
Nuke Propulsion crews are cream of the crop. It's tough or it was tough to get through the school and it should be so. I know a guy who is a Math professor who didn't make it through. I also knew another guy who was a genius but also an impulsive screw up with no common sense who thankfully washed out. Both guys were in my shop LOL.
