The Seabees built “A” and it was completed before “B”. I’ve read that typical American attitude was build it fast, get the job done then throw it away.

I wonder if any of it is on the seabed.

The story is the Americans built it much quicker, BUT because they had only secured every sixth bolt. Whilst the British secured everything.
