Loss of “Ady Gil” a heartbreaker

I’ve been following with interest the fate of the Sea Shepherd Peter Bethune, now facing 15 years in a Japanese jail for having an environmental conscience – albeit one that was, shall we say,  highly flamboyant. He had a lovely high tech trimaran, the “Ady Gil,” that looked like it had zoomed out of a Batman movie. It was  fast, invisible to radar ,and had lots of cool toys to frustrate illegal whalers. Said whalers clearly didn’t like it, because they cut the vessel in two – watch here.
