The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, best known for its aggressive tactics against whaling vessels, had added a stealthy, high-speed boat to its fleet. At The National Post, Jeremy Barker writes:
The Ady Gil, a bio-diesel powered trimaran, can hit 40 knots and Captain Paul Watson plans to sail it quickly into harms way....The Andy Gil, which has circled the globe in a little over 60 days, has been coated with radar blocking black paint, which will be used as an 'intercept and blocking' weapon against the Japanese fleet.
