The name of the ship (Nimrod) probably needs a USS or some such signature. I don't know enough about maritime lingo to make the change myself. —Frecklefoot 15:15 10 Jun 2003 (UTC)

Unlikely to need one, civilian sailing vessels traditionally didn't have a prefix - probably because they were the default, prefixes only needed to identify the atypical (naval, steam-powered, etc), although I've never seen a definitive statement on the true origin of prefixes.
