Wasted Technology-- Matte Black Earthrace Power Boat

How sweet does this 78 foot stealth boat look?  Yeah I know, "f@#$ing sweet!"  But is this an attack boat for a platoon of Navy SEALs?  No.  Is it Batman's stealth boat?  Also no.  The Earthrace Power Boat is for incompetent, vegan pussies the Sea Shepard Conservation Society.

The matte black paint job and sleek design will allow the Earthrace to sidle up next to Japanese whalers (see below) and stage a peaceful protest (?!?!)

God, what a waste.  "Peace" and "stealthy power boat" should never be used in the same sentence.  As usual, I'm not alone on this one; Trey Parker and Matt Stone (the geniuses behind South Park) anticipated this for in the penultimate episode.  Here's what they (and I) think should have happened:

... The boat leaves Perth on December 7 on a three-month journey alongside the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's Steve Irwin to protest Japan's industrial whaling program.
