Harbormasters are applauding a new tug and service craft from Bandit Boats, and the new craft has been impressing some ports so much they are talking about getting rid of previous tugs.

“She’s a pudgy workhorse,” said one person trying a demo. “I love her.”

Dutch Harbor, the home to Bandit Boats, Boss Craft, Mesh Shop, and several other elite brands will see another boat settle into the water. The soon to be released craft is a sailing classic, a refresh on one of Bandit Boats’ first blockbuster crafts.

“You really can’t gush enough for Analyse (Dean) and her crew,” said WBA President Sketch Sun. “Her products are so beautiful that you just want them all, and she’s an architect too. A bird told me that there’s more coming too, with an entire lineup of boats in drydock and new restaurants for the visitors. Can’t say enough good things, really.”

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.”

A private conversation between Chia, the CEO of Feral Marine and the Fugitive Lawyer was recorded and sent to the Waterbank News, which immediately prepared it for print.

“It just turns out that Feral engineers are not very quick about developing weapons systems. They refuse to talk to anyone else about it, but it seems that they are genuinely afraid of how powerful the Lynx might be. Meanwhile the weapons development team is bogarting the prototype build and the Lynx is so expensive to build that we could only afford to build the prototype. I really could use a drink.”

A garbled voice that is likely the Fugitive Lawyer’s asks about prepaid contracts.

“The procurement process for weapons from the SL Navy is pending. Since Feral is not a military company. We have no deals in place with any weapons makers yet. My head of legal said that he is trying to work out a deal with someone.”

The Fugitive Lawyer says something about a transport plane, then Chia answers.

“We did the C-23 Sherpa design a long time ago. Our legal department did something right and they sold the rights to that to an aviation company. They’re back to working well, but we may put you on retainer.”
