Was a Russian sub, a Sierra-2, really sighted 275 miles off the southern East Coast in international waters? This is not good news. Please disregard your grumblings about CNN. The story is appearing all over the web. . .
Here I was, posting silly stories on skydivers parachuting onto the base or CDR Mike Ward, the Skipper of the sub the USS Pittsburgh and his shenanigans. And all the time we had a Ruskie sub off our shores. This is distressing.
Our pals at the General Services Administration have got a deal for you. They are trying to shed one extra stealth boat. Buy the Sea Shadow and the GSA may go to Vegas to party:
The government is getting rid of the Navy’s experimental Sea Shadow stealth boat. And if you got the goods, this sweet ride could be yours.
But there’s a catch: you have to scrap the boat.
The 164-foot-long craft is up for auction by the General Services Administration and has a $10,000 minimum bid, that, as of noon Monday, had not been met. Act fast, the auction ends May 4 at 5 p.m. CST.
If you plunk down dough for the Sea Shadow, you also get the Hughes Mining Barge, which was originally built by the CIA to raise a sunken Russian sub.
