We have Sea Shepherd in town at the moment. They got in the news a lot in 2010 when their previous boat the Ady Gil was sunk after being rammed by Japanese whaling boat Shonan Maru No 2 .

Anyway, they have a new boat to replace the Ady Gil , and it's pretty awesome . I would feel pretty powerful on the bridge of this thing. It's docked at Queen's Wharf right now and we went by to have a look. Here is the bow art: My question: Candidate for EscherGirls , or not? Also, you all have tieke to thank for saving the world. Yup.
