I hate that pipe.
I've been in 4 collisions at sea and a grounding and after that I can assure you that it doesn't make alot of fun. But, on the plus side with one of them the After Seamans head had a picture window which was a nice feature when you were taking a giant dump and wanted to reflect on the world.
The other 3 not so much fun.
