    Crazy Moving Submarine Drug Bust

    Two boats tear through the water in hot pursuit of a narco submarine. “Alta su barco! Alta su barco! Ahora!” [Translation: Stop your boat! Stop your boat! Now!] screams one of the Coast Guardsman just before three camouflage clad members of the elite United States Coast Guard boarding team leap aboard the submersible. Carefully balancing on the wet surface of the sub as waves rush over his feet, a Coast Guardsman pounds on the hatch. One of the drug smugglers opens it, putting his hands up in surrender. You may have seen the gripping footage taken by one of the Coast Guardsman’s helmet cams. On June 18, 2019 in the…

    This is WHY WE DO IT! Cruiser PARADISE – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 236

    Suez Canal Timelapse | Life at Sea on a Container Ship
