Quote:
The MK VI patrol boats are designed and built by American boat manufacturer, Safe Boats International (SBI) to serve as the next-generation patrol boats for the US Navy. The 85ft patrol boats will replace the ageing patrol boat fleet of Naval Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC) and will support the Coastal Riverine Force (CRF)......................

The MK VI patrol boat is the first mission-specific patrol boat designed for the US Navy since the mid-1980s. It will replace the smaller 68ft Mark V and 34ft Sea Ark to defend the green-water navy. The CRF will deploy the patrol boats for critical infrastructure protection (CIP) in and around foreign ports across the world.

The boats can operate in brown, green or blue waters, and will be deployed to patrol shallow littoral regions beyond the harbours and bays. They can conduct missions in the open ocean for protecting defence forces.

Bell Jet Ranger Suddenly Plummets Into The Water In Pearl Harbor (video in link)
https://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/bell-jet-ranger-suddenly-plummets-into-the-water-in-pea-1760086130

Quote:
Thankfully, all five people onboard the helicopter survived, although one passenger has serious injuries and is in critical condition. Once the helicopter’s rotors stopped turning, bystanders jumped in the water to pull the passengers out of the stricken Jet Ranger that had tipped over after crash-landing.

Britain gave £84m a year to Mozambique to set up fishing fleet but bought military boats | Daily Mail Online

Quote:
Britain has suspended aid to Mozambique, one of the world’s poorest nations, after secret loans meant to fund a state-owned tuna-fishing firm were instead used to buy expensive military patrol boats from France.

its nay sayers who stifle innovation.https://www.bangkokpost.com/news/transport/1379711/bullet-train-project-set-to-cost-b420bn

There are always reasons not to do stuff. How do you think they built the rail system in Japan or China, by just saying, oh there is too much stuff in the way? We are soooooooooooo far behind other nations in our transportation technology, but OK we got our cars

I did Sir D.
Although in all honesty I did not know the meaning until now. My bad, especially since our BSA Troop did a few overnighters on it. Even took a work related photo standing on the deck too

Yes, VERY COOL!!
Pics won’t post so I’ll edit later and add them
