Yet another weapon in the fight against the Japanese whalers this December has been revealed. Earthrace skipper Pete Bethune posted a photo of his team painting black a SeaDoo, nicknamed the “E.Vadar”, capable of reaching 70mph and 260HP. “It’ll be a key tactical weapon for us,” he wrote in an email.

I’ve taken a ride on this exact model — and somewhere between 35mph-45mph, you start to have serious issues hanging on. Granted, even at those speeds, the Sea Shepherd won’t have difficulty making circles around the Japanese — but they’ve got to be wary of those water cannons. Getting knocked off a SeaDoo on a lake in the summertime is one thing. Doing it in the treacherous freezing waters of Antarctica is quite another.
