"This one-off boat has been run in fresh water a total of 4 times since built."

This means that if the owner does not want it after only four uses then you don't want it either.

pirate Possible Tender

It would make a good dink if your in a hurry to make a beer run, but the carrying capacity seems to fall a bit short.

Han Solo: I'm captain of the Millennium Falcon. Chewie here tells me you're lookin' for passage to the Alderaan system?
Obi-Wan: Yes indeed, if it's a fast ship.
Han Solo: Fast ship? You've never heard of the Millennium Falcon?
Han Solo: She'll make point five past lightspeed. She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid. I've made a lot of special modifications myself.

China's Secret Nuclear Submarine Project

One of China's news agencies, "The Peoples Daily Online", leaks photo of their new Top Secret nuclear attack sub!



Full deep submergence tests are scheduled for the Marianas trench later this month. Although officals are reluctant to release any performance figures on this, their newest, latest and greatest, military accomplishment, industry insiders have been overheard to say that: "this sub is fully capable of diving to the bottom of the Marianas abyssal" and were also heard later on to say that: "it's also unlikely that it'll ever return to the surface!"

Taiwan responds to news of China's Nuclear Sub

The former British Commonwealth of Taiwan has retaliated with a display of it's own military and naval might with the recent disclosure of nuclear deep submergence weapons by it's not so friendly neighbor (and also claims sovereignty over Taiwan) China. Local Taiwanese netizens have posted the following top secret photo of what is rumoured to be "surplus but still state of the art British thermo-hydrodynamic propelled attack submarine".



Tensions between the two neighbors are extremly high as you could imagine. Reports of extreme name calling between netizens of both countries is rampant on the Internet! More reports as they become available on this breaking story as they become available!

Reports are now pouring in that the US has redeployed some of its newest strategic recognizance naval assets to monitor the situation unfolding in the East China Sea.



This stealth remotely controlled vehicle was #1 on the defence departments R&D program in 2002 with one prototype being produced at a respectable cost of only $14.7M. Since entering active duty the StingRay ROV has set an all time endurance record for autonomous operation at sea for over 1800 days! How did it do this you ask? It's the ultra top secret fuel source. The Internet's most well respected conspiracy theory web site, The Smoking Gun dot calm lists the main powerplant of the StingRay as the "Illudium Q36 Interplanetary Space Modulator"!

Live picture feed from StingRay is being received as I type. Here's the latest on the situation developing in the East China Sea!



Stay tuned. This reporter has to go take a valium. BRB

Wink Breakaway state, Nagorno-Karabakh lends support

The former Soviet Union breakaway state of Nagorno-Karabakh has pledged its entire naval reserves to the defence of Tawian. Although not a naval super power the people of Nagorno-Karabakh have proven time and time again that their inginuity and skills at improvisation are invaluable in their continued struggle for independence. The people of Nagorno-Karabakh, with an insatiable appetite for cheap small electronic gizmos & gadgets, see Taiwan as a very important strategic ally.



The Nagorno-Karabakh warship "Нагорный Карабах" (translated: Hammer of Karabakh) is seen here making preparations for sea!

Holy Batboats Batman!

Having heard about the troubles brewing in the Eastern China Sea the Caped Crusader and his faithful sidekick "Goofy Looking Guy in White Business Shirt" race off across the ocean to bring truth, justice and the American Way to those in conflict!
