That link above shows the wrong kind of drone for the story. If you want to see the real deal look at this video;

Now here's a REAL scoop for you drone news fans;

I have seen for myself, an unmanned government drone water vehicle. I have seen a group of around 8 soldiers operating this vehicle three times now on our border waters. This might be the very first civilian reporting/sighting of the new water drone. So if I commit suicide in a strange way today then you know it was them. No, I didn't get a picture of it because the camo dudes were looking at me in such a way that I didn't even reach for the camera.

Yup. It looked like one of those flying wings, only 4 feet across. They were towing it behind a boat the first time I saw it.

Medicated? Of course, I'm a patient. What's your excuse? LOL I'm a highly functioning medicated patient don't you know. Learned to use my medication responsibly a long time ago.

I hear ya. I don't know what it was. It looked like a drone for water or some kind of tow-behind radar. It was cold out and these guys were military, not the beach boys. LOL

I guess a lot of drones land on water so maybe it was an aircraft.

I thought about that and did some research. All the really good towed metal detectors don't float and look sort of like a trolling motor. I thought this too because I believe a meteorite splashed down near there a long time ago. There are depth anomolies that are hard to explain.

he might but then he would have to...

"dispatch" ya

giggle

i think it was maybe some kinda towed sonar array..or " listening device" just like the ones they use on land for recovering meteors.. they can't have any metal anywhere near them.. so probably it was designed to be towed as well as camouflaged as it had no internal power.....
but what do i know.. seriously.. i wasn't there..:)

got a picture of it?

how about a drawing?

sounds like some kinda stealth boogie submarine water board designed for catching the Asian carp as they invade our watershed..

I'm thinking it might be the army corp of engineers.

Asian carp? Could be.

I'm not good at drawings but I'm remembering more details. It looked like it had rubber bumper all around the edge like a bumper car.
