The Ady Gil was a carbon-fibre trimaran, which, under its previous name Earthrace, circled the globe in a record 61 days. Sea Shepherd was given the boat late last year, which was repainted with black, radar deflective paint so it would be able to sneak up on whalers and intercept its hunting.

I guess nobody told them it's bad luck to rename a boat
