Blake Sea and Adjacent

Sailors on the Blake Sea have been seeing this ship – the WWS Waterbank – more and more, and are nervous about it.

“It didn’t help that Old Man Half Hitch told me it was a ghost ship,” said one sailor we talked to at Hollywood Airport. “It really has me freaking out.”

“It came out of the mist and nearly hit us,” said another boater. “When I yelled at it no one came out. It just kept on going, without a person in sight.”

A number of coast guards have asked that boaters call in the location of the ship, which they believe might have had some mishap. “We’re not saying ‘deadly disease that could decimate the world,'” said one SLCG rep, “and we are definitely not saying ‘vengeful ghost ship that can’t be stopped with modern science.'”

Old Man Half Hitch had this to say: “I tol’ y’er.”

Known by the party set as “Yanete The Queen of Blake Sea,” this beach destination takes advantage of its seclusion to host a constant set of parties.

“It’s like, totally,” said one partier who had just returned from the bushes with an inflatable turtle. “Totally, ya know?”

Travelers interested in tropical punch should rez a boat and make their way to the Blake Shore (link).

A new ship pulled into the Feral Marine main store docks today, surprising the sales staff. “We had no clue it was arriving, but there it was with the logo and everything,” one sales staff said.

The sales staff was further surprised when the crew, all dressed in military gear disembarked from the boat and calmly walked up the hill to the airport, where they boarded a C-130 with no markings and departed.

The mystery boat is still sitting at the Feral Main Store, and sales staff have told us that when they contacted the CEO, Volchia Ferduccio, she told them to “ignore it.”

The boat, believed to be Project Ripper, is rumored to be in sea trials and weapons system development. Rez Gray, the developer behind GridTalkie has been seen doing some work onboard. But he would not say a word to reporters or anyone else. Ammunition, weapons, and fuel have all been seen by the sales staff being loaded onboard.

“It’s kinda freaking me out, all this secrecy,” said one sales staff member.

A number of cruise ship captains went early to the the Andrea Doria launch (link), thinking that it was a new cruise ship, named after the ill fated Italian liner.

“We need work,” one said. “There are very few cruise ships in this world.”

The launch is actually for a new freighter, which is a high demand area of shipping.

“People need to move goods,” said one dock worker. “That’s why companies like TNT are doing so well.”

Waterbank Airlines has made several black lists after ferrying a paramilitary group to one of the contested islands in the Blake Sea area, angering a number of political groups.

“Civilian airlines have no business moving troops,” said the spokeswoman for the Unhitch Half Hitch Union (UHHU – “yoohoo”). “If Waterbank Airlines tries to land here we’ll blast’em outta the sky!”

A representative from WA was unapologetic. “Oh please. Half Hitch? I’m surprised they know what an airplane is. We are in business, and will ferry anyone for a price. That’s how a business works.”

The CP vessel docked at the infamous Bygone Church in the Honahs. The church was the sight of a massacre during the fight for independence of the island.

The Coastal Patrol has sent out a “good will” vessel to assure residents of Blake Sea islands that the CP is still committed to stopping the illegal sand trade. The vessel, a newly acquired MLB from Feral Marine, is the pride of the CP fleet.

“Oh, yeah, but it ain’t the cup holders,” explained one of the ship’s crew. “It’s a beauty on the seas, at speed and in the bunk. It’s da first boat I been on dat kept me dry.”

Coastal Patrol insiders say that the good will tour is having mixed results, depending on where they land. “Some places don’t want to talk about where the sand comes from.”
