Default Fish Attack!

Well, it finally happened.
After sharing our pond with various denizens of the deep, one of them tried to board a ship.
It happened so quickly, we weren't sure we'd actually seen what we had seen, but when the USS Franklin D Roosevelt returned to port, there was the proof. The attacker had lost several scales on the edge of the flight deck.
It's suspected the culprit was a juvenile mullet, known to leap when the model ships approach.
Previously, we'd struck sunbaking carp, but none of them tried piracy...........

A few years back I witnessed a similar incident a few miles up the road from you (Lemon Tree Passage) when a small mullet dove ahead of a boat running at speed. Unfortunately for the mullet it was an RC airboat and there were many pieces of mullet thrown in the air. I believe I have a video of the event stashed away somewhere. Got to watch those mullet!!

My square-rigger USS Constitution has been attacked multiple times by carp while sailing in a local manmade pond. It is very shallow and the keel almost touches the bottom, so it's probable I simply ran into them and the fish merely expressed their discontent.

Imagine trying to sail where the Asian Carp have invaded...

That would be what we scale warship combat skippers call a "target rich environment".

The occasional non-scale "depth charge" would tend to control the situation somewhat.....not that I endorse dynamite fishing of course.

Not at all.

Nope, not me.

You guys listening, out there in Homeland Security world?

LOL.
