Always Wanted a Stealth Boat? The Navy Is Giving This One Away

This is Sea Shadow, the Navy's first first stealth vessel and the inspiration for the stealth ship in Tomorrow Never Dies. It can now be yours, for free. But there's a catch.
The catch is, the Navy is insisting upon donating it intandem with a giant, ugly, rust-laden submsersible barge called the Hughes Mining Barge. The vessel was actually used as a floating dock for the Sea Shadow, protecting it from the prying eyes of Soviet spy satellites.
The WSJ has a great story on Frank Lennon, a Naval museum operator in Providence, RI whose sole attraction—a retired old Soviet sub—was sunk by a tidal wave. While it has recently been exhumed from the deep, Frank has his eye on the Sea Shadow as his next big crowd-getter. Now he just has to figure out what to do with ths shitty old barge it comes with.
Anyone want to take on old Frank for the prize? The Navy is waiting for your calls. [WSJ]
