My Boat? I Need My Boat.

The Navy's new soopa-ship is just about to be turned over to the service for trials. It was built by the well-known shipwrights at Lockheed Martin.

Yeah, I had to look at it twice too. This sort of partnership was mentioned briefly in the book Skunkworks, but the author said the Navy was so entrenched in "the Navy way" they were impossible to deal with. I guess anybody can get along if enough money is put on the table.

Really, it's Newport News Shipbuilding. It's just that LM owns NNS at the moment, so the bumper sticker on the ship says "LOCKHEED MARTIN".

You hire people away from the government to deal with the people who replace them.

Or send them a sexy goat. With all that time on their little boats, they need some diversion
