sea-shadow-secret-vessel-1

Giving away a couple of secret vessels certainly can’t be easy– but we’re surprised there’s not a huge bidding war for these babies. Apparently the US Navy has been trying to find a new home for its first experimental stealth ship – the Sea Shadow, and its top-secret fully submersible dry dock (the only one ever built) – the Hughes Mining Barge. And although staying off radar and fooling spy satellites sounds like a cool thing to do, for the last three years no one showed interest. Mainly because they’re too expensive to maintain. So is there anyone here who’d like to sunbath from the top of a “secret weapon”? The Navy wants to hear from you. [via WSJ]
