The SSS Sam Simon...

No, that's not a Japanese research vessel (anymore) — it's the newest addition to Neptune's Navy, the SSS Sam Simon!

This ship was generously purchased for Sea Shepherd by Los Angeles-based philanthropist and co-creator of TV's "The Simpsons," Mr. Sam Simon. It is an ice-strengthened steel vessel that was retired from service by the Japanese Government in 2010 and recently purchased covertly from the Japanese government for use in Sea Shepherd campaigns. Her maiden voyage will be Operation Zero Tolerance!
