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!

WESTERLY - Kickstarter...

Not your typical surf film plot line…but then Peter and Westerly are not your typical surfers:

Peter Drouyn was one of surfing's first superstars. A true visionary, he dominated the international competitive ranks in the '60s and '70s, invented man-on-man surfing, and introduced surfing to China. He was an actor, a lawyer, a father, a ladies' man, and most of all, a chameleon.

But there was much about Peter Drouyn that he kept private. As a child, he liked to dress up in women's clothes. During his competitive years, he was hypersensitive and introspective amid a culture that was often macho, myopic, and sexist. For most of his career he felt ostracized. In the '80s he drifted away from competitive surfing and all but disappeared.

In 2002, Peter suffered a traumatic surfing accident that nearly drowned him. Not long after, Peter's feminine side fully emerged. "It was a supernova," said Westerly. "It just kicked in one night, and suddenly Peter went, Westerly was there."

Find out how to help get the "Westerly" project get off the ground by visiting their Kickstarter page.
