Seems that lasers weren’t the only secret weapon the Sea Shepherd were keeping under wraps.

The anti-whaling organization let loose today that a brand-new third ship, the MV BOB BARKER, has discovered the Japanese whaling fleet. Said one member of the Sea Shepherd’s shore crew, “We have had to keep the secret, Bob Barker, for eons! We had to squirm out of so many situations and questions to keep the secret!! This is pretty big news, the Bob Barker is a Ice Breaker!! Whoo Hoo!! Imagine the surprise from the Whalers!”

No kidding.

Now, the Sea Shepherd have one more boat — and a big one at that — to disrupt the whaling; something the Japanese probably did not count on when coming up with strategies to keep interference to a minimum. With the fleet now located, the Barker can keep tabs on their every move while it waits for the rest of the SS boats to arrive. According to the latest update, the Irwin is approx 700 miles away and should rendezvous with the Bob Barker and the Japanese fleet in three days. The Ady Gil is only about 50 miles from the Japanese whaling fleet. (For those playing along at home, the whaling fleet is currently located in the Commonwealth Bay off the Adelie Coast at 143 Degrees 17 Minutes East and 66 Degrees 43 Minutes South.)

As an aside, nice choice SS on naming the new boat after Bob Barker, a tireless advocate for animal welfare and a generous soul to boot.

Pics to come soon. (And ain’t it nice knowing that the Japanese just wasted an incredible amount of money tailing the Irwin while the Barker was out there doing the real searching? Beautiful work, SS)

UPDATE: Photo is up!
