    It's about Japan killing whales and an organization similar to green peace that tries to stop them.

    Completely impractical as a self sustained vessel but its cool none the less. They should launch that from one of the ships. or tow it. Traveling that far in a boat meant for speed not open water.

    No I wont, figure if Zombies came all the food supply (ie meat ect) will be gone and well I aint going to eat rotten meat of a zombie, that leaves only one option, Am I your valuable ally or am I a survivalist.......gonna have to wait and see on that one.

    I just dont understand why they would risk the lives of 5 men in an intercept rig like that for some whales. Since when has man stepped down from the top of the food chain? I thought it was a wicked vessel but its not made for open water self navigation. The design is all wrong, that thing is designed to go fast in a straight line with calm water.

    That's what I thought too. I guess the boat is too large to store on one of the ships like the inflatables.

    Towable very towable, and with it being its shape and color radar wont pick up the anomaly being towed along side the ship.

    those side planes make it impossible to traverse rough seas as we saw on the show, Radar is expensive and to risk the lives for 5 men for some fish. Whaling is big in japan as they use every single part of the whale, unlike us with our food.

    Im against cruelty but we wouldnt have the fish we do if it wasnt for science and research. Im just saying, these arent all endangered or the like. What I dont understand is why are they using (enemy on the show) recon and surveillance ships if they are just doing whaling, it seems there is ALOT more then meets the eye.

    I watch it every now and then and it's pretty good from what I've seen (not really that into watching tv)...usually will catch myself flicking through the channels at 2am when I can't sleep. I wish they'd take more action though...most episodes that I caught they get sent out in a rubber boat and have to come back in because they can't catch the japanese ship.
