After a long wait the team at Dutch Harbor has released the Luxe Motor, an early 20th century barge with integrated GTFO capability. The ship has a list of features (go to the jump for the list), among which are a working crane and a live in cabin.
Analyse Dean, Dutch, Ape, and Rez Grey each had a part in the craft, which is already making it’s way into the lucrative river trade.
“We anticipate a ten percent increase in shipping from this year’s new boats,” said a representative at the Waterbank Maritime Union. “That means more activity at ports and more work for crews.”

Waterbank News’ key photographer was kidnapped yesterday, making the paper photoless for the time being.
“I sent him out to take some pictures of wild flowers in the East River Mountains,” said the Editor in Chief of Waterbank News, “and it’s been five days…”
If anyone has seen the photographer, a svelte woman in her 40s wearing a feather boa, please contact the authorities. We would show you a picture, but, ya know, no photographer.

Shergood Aviation has just released the latest in its EC-135 series, a police helicopter with incredible features. On top of a Shergood Aviation core of hardware and software, the helicopter is designed for law enforcement. FLIR, IR, and EO all visible on a monitor behind the pilot, and updates as the helicopter changes position. Launch tubes with tear grenades and flash bangs have been installed for unruly crowds, and a loudspeaker helps you get your instructions out. Spotlight and a position for a SWAT sniper makes storming hostile situations easy as veal cordon blue. Rappel ropes adjust by height, and the demo that this reporter saw looked so cool he clapped for an encore.
To get a look at this magnificent beast, there is a video (link), a showroom (Grayling link), and Marketplace too.
Shergood Aviation craft are meticulously designed for real flight experiences, and are ideal for pilots that are looking for an immersive experience.
The Archerfield Mouse, an animal that simultaneously made the protected and kill list at the airfield has been identified as a rabbit.
“Calling it a mouse would just be inaccurate,” said a Waterbank University biology professor. “Two large ears and a fluffy tail… that’s a rabbit.”
“No it ain’t,” hiccuped a painter working on the beacon light at Archerfield. “If you saw what I saw, you’d know they ain’t bunnies. They’re way too smart for that. I once put down my sandwich on a bench and when I turned back there was an IOU.”
An epidemic of stolen tires, hubcaps, and lug nuts has stricken urban areas, according to the Sheriff’s Department.
“This is the first real test of our new open source police model,” said the local Sheriff in East River. “Now that each area has what they need, we’ll see if Sheriff Departments can nip the tire nippers.”
