Supposedly, the noise of them eating draws others in (apparently, horning in on someone else's meal is de rigeur for crabs.) Some crabbers say that, if you pull up a pot of undersized crabs and decide to rebait and reset, you should leave the smaller ones in to draw in new crabs. Dunno, as I rarely (as in never) reset pots.

That does make sense. I just looked it up online if crabs can hear. They dont have ears but they can still "hear" using all the hairs on their bodies. Interesting.

What's that then? It looks like the love-child of a Bladerunner air-entrapment hull and one of the Halmatic VSVs that the SBS used to use.

Looks like it could be from the Wally Stable?

Something for Earthrace?

Years ago I spotted this coming into the gate.


The now black Ady Gil was later smashed up by the Sea Shepard crew, and sunk.


They come up with some pretty funky boats.

This is too far off-topic now but...

"Wally//118 is arguably the most distinctive and fastest motor yacht in the world.

Its three gas turbine engines produce 17,000 horsepower, propelling the 118 to more than 60 knots. With its striking vertical bow it cuts through the water with unmatched stability and control so that even at high speeds the experience is pure Wally.

With bright and spacious interiors the 118 is a truly unique combination of the thrills of a high-performance sport boat with the comforts of a luxury cruising yacht."

SF Chronicle has this article:
Boat of the future: Mysterious yacht appears in S.F. Bay - SFGate

Short version: Galeocerdo, a 118ft motor yacht. $33 million, capable of 60 kts. It was built by Wally.
