Real boats have 3 hulls


After a quick goog search revealing nothing, decided to be the 1st to document the interior for you the viewers. 15mm on a full frame proved to be the right camera system, but didn't have as wide a depth of field as hoped.

Once inside, the futuristic hull fades away & it looks like any other ship from 30 years ago, if maybe a bit cleaner. There is no evidence inside the maze of corridors of any futuristic hull except for the strangeness of all aluminum walls.

The same exposed wiring, steep ladders, cramped spaces, & spartan rooms of the old days still abound. Can't imagine getting around there during a storm or a battle. On the bridge, it seemed incredibly expensive to have so much equipment specifically made for the military instead of using commercial boating gear.

Like all its other scandals, false advertizing by the contractor about the required crew led to another 15 people being crammed into a space designed for 40. Fortunately, the 3 hulls, low draft, & aluminum frame can get them home faster than any other ship. Everything was labeled & organized for transitory crews that come & go with their scholarship obligations.

They didn't show the engine room with its twin LM2500's, any debriefing room, or any closeup of the mane gun. Suspect all other areas besides what we saw were crammed with equipment. All the copters & UAV goodies were gone. There were just a couple dingees.
