Sea Fighter Mystery Looms
What is the impending fate of the Navy’s experimental and recently upgraded Sea Fighter FSF-1? Last we heard she was headed for the Caribbean and Southern Command, but rumors abound that she may have been seriously damaged in port during a recent storm, as we mentioned last week. The following obscure paragraph from an obscure article in the Daily Astorian apparently confirms this:
heard reports of November storm damage to the foundation of the Bornstein Seafoods processing plant between piers 1 and 2 and to the Navy’s Sea Fighter vessel, which was docked on the end of Pier 2, where the wind and swells sent it banging up against the pier and punched a 3-foot by 8-foot hole in the hull.
