I wish I had a picture to go with this blog. I really do, because the boat I wanted to blog about was awesome. I found it one day by poking around on Google looking for the world's fastest boat. This boat wasn't it, but it still could fly—upwards of 80 mph if I recall. It was about 60 feet in length, with a tri-hull design, and some kind of futuristic, all black, matte paint job that covered a crazily angled superstructure. It looked like a Stealth Bomber transformed into a boat, or else maybe the Bat Boat on steroids. In the Youtube video I saw of it the SEALS were using it out in Coronado, testing her out, doing maneuvers. And there were pictures all over the web of it. This was about a month or two ago.
But then today when I looked it up and tried to blog it for you—poof. Vanished. Not a trace of this B-2-super-duper Bat Boat anywhere on the interwebs. Just gone. I'm guessing some IT guy at the DoD has a little extra hop in his step this morning, because he managed to wipe all evidence of this thing out of existence—which admittedly is pretty impressive. But me? I'm bummed. I wanted to share.
Also, I'm fully expecting to be spirited away in the middle of the night by a bunch of dudes wearing identical gray suits and ear pieces now, but that is neither here nor there.
