Feral Marine, the largest of the Feral companies, has won another competitive bid, this time from the SLMC. Feral will now be supplying the military elite group with their RB-L and the Prowler (link), and has options for the new Lynx when it finishes testing.

“We’re excited about this partnership,” said a spokesperson, “Feral has a strong presence in the rescue and interdiction boat market, and is battle tested. We look forward to doing more together.”

The unlucky WIA agent that was outed at the Yankee Diner has been unlucky again, this time shopping in Sunny Fields (link).


What interested other shoppers in the sighting was that everyone expected the outed spy to look at the high tech troop carrier at LSI, but instead he went for a circa 1960s camper.

“I guess everyone loves a road trip,” one observer said.

Gentek, the premier infrastructure and elevator company has improved their gold standard Condor Elevator with the new Delta Elevator, and architects are beside themselves with joy.

“The Condor was awesome – the Delta is just – wow,” said one architect we met at the showroom in Prototype (link at right under Big 7). “So many features, so streamlined, small land impact… wow!”

On top of a low prim, high end product, the new system has a new product from NBS incorporated in it, the KeyRing access list service (link to NBS info). The list of features that the new system has is too long to publish here, so shoppers are encouraged to see the Marketplace listing (link), the product support page (link), or check them out in person at Prototype Gardens (link at right).

The elevator system was masterminded by Nelson Jenkins (Gentek) and supported by NTBI heavies like Lyte Rae and Will Szymborska. Follow the above links to see the product in action.

Analyse Dean is one of the most charming people you will ever meet. Generous, creative, fun loving, and with a personality that can make a puppy feel inadequately cute, she is also a major player in industry.

Though her humility would not let her admit it, she has had a hand in shaping how we travel on the water, and anyone who has crossed anything bigger than a lake is familiar with her work. She’s a passionate sailor, and her craft are among the best in the world. Analyse is the mastermind behind Bandit Boats (BANBO), Boss Craft, and has been known to help other creators as well. She works with Mesh Shop regularly, and the symbiotic partnership at Dutch Harbor (link at right, under Big 7) has brought the island port to fame. In fact she has had a hand in the buildings, tunnels, layout, and culture of Dutch Harbor, making it a destination unto itself as well as a shopping paradise.

For this piece Analyse invited us to the secret lab – a sandbox full of fascinating projects that are likely to get boat lovers excited. A warning to those shoppers who are faint of heart – not all projects are as ready as they look.

Analyse was dressed for summer next to a soon to be released craft when we met. We were so overwhelmed by the sight – 180 degrees of boats and amazing buildings. “How can you keep all these projects from blurring? I made blueberry pancakes the other day, and somehow got the bacon in the middle… It’s staggering how much is going on here.”
Analyse: Hehehe, yeah, I know. And this is maybe half my projects, the other half isnt even rezzed.
“Many look like they are ready to go…”
Analyse: Well, thats relative, most of it is still pretty raw, I’d say most are at 30 to 50%, meaning it needs all the details sorted, maps sorted, all the code, all the animations, etc.
We grinned. “I guess I see lawn chairs and just assume.”
Analyse: We can do stuff quickly if needed, we had an emergency build for the SL15B, we did an entire boat in two hours 🙂
We nearly fell off the dock with shock. “2 hours… that’s like a pizza…”
Analyse: It was fun, we even built a little game around it.
“What’s next in the line up?”
Analyse: We are standing next to it, the new Bandit 50, fully BOSS3. It’s more fun to sail than its cruiser looks will make you expect, it will be a lively boat.

We chatted for a while longer until breaking news pulled us away, but we learned something else about Analyse. In her and her projects, there’s a lot more than what you see. And what you see is beautiful.

Reader game: Can you count how many projects are in the picture? Answers are after the jump!

The Archerfield Waterbank News Office (link under Big 7 at right) is reporting that ZSK is actively working on a project which has been dubbed “Snubbie.”

“Actually,” said an anonymous source that was in the Archerfield Maintenance Department told us, “Snubbie is my name for it. It’s the P-47, that monster of a classic fighter.”

Rumors are circulating that the fighter in construction is capable of bombs and ‘on the rail’ missiles as well as a fierce rate of climb.

“If you know ZSK planes,” WBA President Sketch Sun told us, “then you know that this won’t just be a classic warbird. This will be a deadly piece of art.”

ZSK planes are some of the highest rated planes in the world, and regularly win awards. The stock price on the WSE (link) rose sharply after the news.
