SUPER FAST stealth attack boat for the US military and Navy
Another great idea for the us military and us navy . This fast attack
stealth boat will make a difference. GHOST is a super-cavitating surface
craft which is able to achieve 900 times less hull friction compared to a
conventional watercraft and is developed by US Citizens for the US Navy at
no cost to the US government for providing superior protection to US
service personnel. The craft was built by Juliet Marine Systems. The
secrecy orders on the project were removed on 11 August 2011
The Ghost uses a gyro-stabilized dual-pontoon supercavitating hull to run
at top speed through 10-foot seas. Called small waterplane-area twin-hull
(SWATH), it is controlled by 22 computer-controlled underwater control
surfaces. When at rest or moving slowly, the Ghost sits in the water on its
centerline module. At eight knots or faster, the high-grade marine aluminum
buoyant hulls lift the vessel and achieve full stability. Propulsion on the
prototype is provided by T53-703 turboshaft engines, with the company planning to
replace them with the General Electric T700 turboshaft. The Ghost has achieved speeds of over
30 knots, and is being tested to 50 knots. It can perform several different
missions including anti-surface warfare (ASuW), anti-submarine warfare
(ASW), and mine countermeasures (MCM): ASuW armament consists of the M197
20mm rotary cannon and launch tubes that expel Exhaust downward between the struts of the SWATH
hulls, concealing and dissipating the thermal signature of the launch for
BGM-176B Griffin missiles and Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System
rockets, with an electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensor and radar; an ASW
version could be equipped with an EO/IR sensor, radar, sonobuoy launch
tubes, a dipping sonar, and four aft-firing torpedo tubes; an MCM version
could be equipped with a towing boom to lower and raise two towed
mine-hunting sonars, such as the Kline 5000 or Raytheon AN/AQS-20A. The
current Ghost costs $10 million per copy, is crewed by 3-5 sailors, and can
be partially disassembled to fit in a C-17 Globemaster III for transport if
needed. It is designed for fleet protection for navies with few blue-water
needs but require a small and affordable craft in large numbers for
near-shore maritime border patrol and defense missions; it is being offered
to international customers including Bahrain, Qatar, Israel, Saudi Arabia,
Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, and Singapore. High-level discussions have been
held with a foreign nation interested in 25 Ghosts for a potential $300
million sale. Juliet Marine is also offering a scaled-up version of the
Ghost to the U.S. Navy as part of their re-evaluation of the Littoral
Combat Ship program. Plans are to build a corvette-sized Ghost of 150 ft
(46 m) in length or more costing about $50 million per vessel, six times
cheaper than the $300 million per-ship cost of a current Freedom-class and
Independence-class littoral combat ship. One impediment to the U.S. Navy
procuring the Ghost is the desire of senior Navy leaders to have
large-hulled oceangoing vessels that can also perform inshore operations
rather than smaller craft specialized for inshore missions.
Juliet Marine Systems is a maritime technology think tank that is
developing innovative solutions for naval and commercial applications. We
seek to assure fleet force protection in response to small vessel terrorist
attacks against our Navy and coalition ships. There is a clear and present
danger of these tactics being used against the U.S. Navy throughout the
world and in our home ports. These same innovative technologies, applied to
commercial needs, will provide a significant decrease in transit time and
increase in energy efficiency, resulting in the savings of thousands of
gallons of fuel daily.
Our Navy is in a revolutionary period of change. Historic military tactics
combined with modern materials and technology present a formidable fleet
protection challenge for our Navy today. One of the greatest threats to our
Navy is low tech vessel attacks with conventional explosives, as seen on
October 12, 2000, when the USS Cole was attacked, killing 17 sailors and
wounding 39 others and in the continued success of pirates. As a maritime
systems think tank, Juliet Marine Systems provides offensive, defensive and
ISR solutions that are developed in a skunk works operation able to rapidly
invent and construct needed technologies and systems for the Navy and armed
forces. We have already developed a surface variant of a super cavitating
craft and are planning to apply our unique technology in a UUV prototype.
While the GHOST is a surface vessel, the hydrodynamics of the twin
submerged buoyant tubular foils are also a test bed for Juliet Marine's
next planned prototype, a long duration UUV. The GHOST is a revolutionary
proprietary technology vessel platform that will assure force protection
through stealth fighter/attack capabilities along with integrated situation

How to dock a single-engine inboard/outdrive boat stern-first
Single-engined, inboard/outdrive boats are acknowledged to be the most
difficult type of boat to dock in reverse, stern-first, in a marina berth.
Here are a few ideas which might make it less of a challenge. We use the
low-speed "steer - then gear" method, plus a piece of ribbon, a
non-electronic Rulan helm indicator and a simple length of rope.
..........Oh yes, and we take our time.

The Most Common Outboard Engine Issues: Fuel Systems and Flushing
For more how to videos, visit www.boats.com.
Visit our boats.com How-To library, and you'll notice that a lot of the
topics relate to outboard engines. This shouldn't be a surprise, since
outboards have been growing in popularity for many years now. So we decided
to ask Chris Breeden, the service manager at Norfolk Marine and a Yamaha
Master Tech, which outboard problem he saw with the most regularity.
Chris's first answer came without hesitation: fuel systems. Thanks to
modern ethanol issues, fuel systems can be finickier than ever. According
to Chris, the first step in maintaining your fuel system is the use of a 10
micron fuel filter/water separator. Secondly, he notes that adding a fuel
stabilizer to the tank each and every time you fill up is a must. And
particularly on smaller, carbureted motors, the fuel system should be
drained down every time the boat will sit unused for more than a few days
at a time.
The first step in this process is to start the engine, and disconnect the
fuel line. Then let the engine idle until it runs out of fuel. Next, place
a rag under the carburetor and open up the carb drain screw. Once all the
remaining fuel has drained away, the engine can sit for several months
without any issues. Making sure the fuel in your tank stays good is, of
course, a separate issue (for more information on long-term fuel storage,
read Ethanol Winterizing Tips).
The next most common problem Chris sees is damage due to saltwater use
without freshwater flushing. Corrosion and salt build up, anodes melt away,
scaling clogs passages and gets into places it doesn't belong, and then
you're left with major damage and a major repair bill. In fact, Chris
showed us the inside of an outboard that hadn't been flushed regularly and
it was a mess—to the tune of thousands of dollars in repair bills.
