Is that a banana torpedo in your shed, or are you just happy to see me?

A Kongsberg Remus model UUV operated by Boeing conducting ‘sonar tests’ for the Big Blue popped up by a waterman’s boat in the Chesapeake so guess what he did…

From the Baltimore Sun:

“It was super foggy the day they discovered this thing,” Laurie Haas said. “They almost hit it with the boat.

“They didn’t know what it was because it was such a bright color yellow.”

Figuring the object was valuable, the crew pulled it onto their boat to see if they could reunite it with its owner. Davis Haas stashed the drone in his shed back home.

“I couldn’t wait to see it when I got home,” Laurie Haas said. “This was the catch of a lifetime.”

Of course Boeing chopped chopped over to them when they found out.

Here’s pictures of a Slocum Glider and a Sea Lion that I came in contact with a couple years back. They are marked up pretty good with ‘If found’ labels.
