Number three: the PROTEUS Boat. **What are you, nuts?!** At 100 feet long, Proteus is a technology demonstrator and was launched in 2007. Succeeding its maiden voyage in the San Francisco Bay, the man Proteus continued to sail over 3,000 miles in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Mediterranean, and on a goodwill mission for NOAA’s marine sanctuary program. From October 2007 to April 2012 the vessel was stationed at Fort Story’s Joint
Expeditionary Base in Norfolk, Virginia.
