Even though the company could legally be asked to reimburse the government £8,000 for its own work in completing the first ironclad, the costs per ton for the Resistance and Defence were higher. ” Thames’s letter to the Secretary of the Admiralty, William Romaine, was especially important because it described the real problems facing Britain’s shipbuilding industry. ”19 Meanwhile, the Resistance herself, though launched in April, was still in the Victoria Docks, waiting for Admiralty possession.

It was the second plan adopted by the Admiralty in May 1861, with the first concerning the privately built iron-hulled ironclads, and it was bound to mitigate any “new discovery of the power of Artillery,” which “disturbs all foregone conclusions” (and therefore suggested that time-consuming ironhulled ventures were short-lived in any case). This plan would both modernize the Navy and protect it from any commercial exploitation or failures. It would also give the Controller, the Navy, and the Government much more direct and encompassing control over the means of ironclad construction.
