 First World War.com - Who's Who - Alfred von Tirpitz
Introducing the First Fleet Act in 1898, Tirpitz announced the re-organisation and build-up of the Navy.
This was followed by the Second Fleet Act in 1900, which proved far more ambitious in determining to construct a fleet capable of matching the British Royal Navy, with a 17-year deadline for the completion of construction of a fleet of 2 flagships, 36 battleships, 11 large and 34 small cruisers.
Given such figures the German Fleet would patently not have been to effectively challenge the British Fleet in open action (with the Battle of Jutland the only notable Fleet action during the war).

During Phase I of First Fleet’s fuel consumption study, nearly 200 telematics devices will be installed on a large cross-section of Class 8 tractors in ten participating private truck fleets with different vocations, as well as with varying demographics in order to identify various ambient temperature and operating terrains.

 Capul v. Fleet Bank
Fleet agreed to the release in exchange for a first mortgage on the Tripletts' car dealership that had recently been appraised at a value of $1.1 million.

Capul's subordination agreement with the Tripletts merely changed his priority; he did not promise Fleet that Fleet could pursue him if the Tripletts failed to fulfill their obligation to the bank and did not undertake to pledge his property as a guarantee for the Tripletts' debt.
