The US Navy's super-secret Sea Shadow stealth cruiser is actually up for sale! Launched in 1984, and probably best known as the inspiration for the seaborne lair of a lesser/lamer Bond villain, she was the love child of a cash-flush Lockheed Martin and a nearly unlimited Cold War paranoia-fueled defense budget. Drawing stealth technology and design from the F-117 stealth fighter program, she was the testbed for advanced naval technology, from sea skimming hull structures to automated control systems. (Not to mention, who knows what else...) And now for a princely pauper's bid deposit of $10,000, you too can stalk the seaboard of third world countries with complete immunity.
Auction includes her floating drydock/barge/boat cave/rotting hulk.
Reagan just did a Double McTwist 1260 in his grave.
