NOAA ships now surplus at gsaauctions.gov

just as Catherder predicted both the McARTHUR II and the KA IMIMOANA both on the block. Once again KP could have a real training vessel instead of their STOOPID rocket boat but missed the FUCKING bus!

.

Bye bye Mac II, you’ll be missed!

SO, which one are you bidding on? These two vessels would make a great addition to your fleet.

Buy the Mac II, good ship.

I wish but they have a bid deposit requirement and I am working on the McDONNELL now and not sure how I can get the money to the government and no chance at all to get to Newport, OR so would have to bid on them sight unseen. I am communicating with some other vessel owners who may be interested in one or the pair.

If I were to bid on one, it would be the one with the best deepwater capable multibeam swath sonar though which I think is the KA’IMIMOANA.

The KA is cheaper…for a reason or three.

Since it’s been a week or so, how’s it going? Are you the new owner of the Mc Donnell or have you bid on one of these fine beauties? (after we pillaged them of course)

No Cat…don’t own the McD or bidding on the pair in Newport.

Regarding the McD…getting the machinery going as we speak but the Navee didn’t even leave us a bloody pencil aboard. They even took the last can of Hoo Hash!

.

Looks like they left behind some hooch though.

Tried to post pics of the KA interior…wrong ones went up and I couldn’t delete those (no, nothing naughty) so I deleted the post.

Anyway, got some KA interior pics if I can figure out how to post 'em, I will. Maybe imgur or somethin.

Well Buddha bless’em. They got a lot more than I thought, but they are both in better shape than the Freeman was.

Wonder what NOAA will blow the money on? Surely it won’t be training and beneficial programs for wage mariners.

Hookers…blow…pens with everyone’s names on them?

I was thinking more like this:

Admiral William J. Petomaine, NOAA Corps, shows ya just how it’s done.

“WE GOTTA PROTECT OUR PHONY-BALONEY JOBS, GENTLEMEN! HARUMPH!”

New uniforms for the NOAA Corps. Maybe two swords for their dress uniforms.

They give them swords! Is there a BOTC class for that or is it OJT?

The oughta give them huge brushy shoulderboards

So they can style like this:

they’re perfect for my PHAVORITE PHAT PHUCKING PHARCIAL Admiral

you know there isn’t much difference between the phoniness of Watson and any NOAA Corps officer…

I guess he’s accepting his award for “Queer of the Year”. Wonder what he keeps in that pink case?

Now that’s someone I’d be ALL IN FAVOR of placing under QUARANTINE.
