Ram of HMS Polyphemus the boat that 'Broke the Boom at Berehaven'244 viewsIn 1885 the ship undertook a simulated attack on a fleet at anchor at Berehaven. The principle object of this was to test tactics for a possible attack on Kronstadt Harbour in the event of the threatened war with Russia. Booms and nets (to catch propellers) were laid across the channel behind Berehaven, along with small observation mines and the area covered by machine guns and torpedo boats. Polyphemus launched a simulated attack on 30 June, evading around ten torpedoes fired by 6 torpedo boats during her 2 mile run-in and, at about 18 knots, easily smashed through the booms and a 5 inch steel hawser holding them in place."
