Something I noticed over the past year with the sitemonitor on this is that the following two posts have consistently gotten some of the most hits of any individual posts during the life of this blog:
Sunday, December 23, 2007 HI Superferry: The Goal...JHSV
Friday, January 4, 2008 More on the Goal...JHSV
Even more interesting is that the above two posts have attracted a lot of foreign attention over the past year and a half, esp. from locations in all of the countries of the world with significant navies.
Somebody else wrote about this too as early as these posts:

Wednesday, January 16, 2008 U.S.S. Superferry? (Article Summary)
The Seafighter ended up being a non-issue. That source from San Diego seemed to have been astray for one reason or another.
There have been other bloggers and bookwriters who have tried to assign credit for who wrote about this first. And who wrote about it most accurately. I think the record speaks for itself.
Oh, and by the way, no writer anywhere yet has shown how JFL benefits from Austal getting the JHSV or LCS contracts. There may be a way in which JFL benefits, but it has not been shown publicly by any writer. None, zero, zip, nada.
Now there's a real mystery for you...maybe the biggest mystery of all in this story, and none of the professionally trained journalists have figured it out.
