doesn’t have to be big or fast. Needs to be floatable.
jeez. not even an old PT boat? Do they have surplus boats, like jeeps?

Tijuana answers:

If you’re a foreign country, you can buy one…or more. I’ve been working with the Naval Sea System Command’s Foreign Miltary Sales as a contractor for over 13 years now. I’ve lost track of how many countries and ships our east coast team has worked. The west coast has similar projects. For example, Taiwan just bought 4 of our old ‘KIDD CLASS’ destroyers we originally had built for Iran. Right now, we are working with India, which bought the USS Trenton LPD-14. Turkey is looking at 2 FAST FRIGATES(FFG) on the west coast for next fiscal year (Turkey is our team’s favorite customer. I’m partial to Taiwan since I’ve worked with them personally more often). Try doing a google.com search on FOREIGN MILITARY SALES NAVY. You’d be surprised who gets our old ships. Mexico bought one of our old LSTs (bow opens up) and towed it to Mexico.
Sadly, some are taken out to sea and sunk. The venerable USS AMERICA CV-66 was recently taken out into the Atlantic and sunk(exact location is classified). Another ship I watched be readied outside my warehouse was the USS SPIEGLE GROVE LSD-32 was towed to off the Florida coast and sunk. However, instead of landing upside right, she wound up hull up. They finally got her resting on her side on the bottom. They were concerned that divers may enter the ship and become disoriented because she was upside down and attempted to right her. One of my old ships was recently literally cut up and scrapped. There are several ships in the James River here in Virginia waiting for their final orders. Those grand old ladies are a sorry and sad sight to see.
Oh, once in a while the Defense Reutilization Material Office has some small craft for auction to the public. One guy here bought an old ‘motor whale boat’ several years ago and refurbished it. When he was done, it looked and ran like a brand new one.

Mandy asks…

Tijuana answers:

I would probably google keywords like Catholic or Christian Colleges New Mexico.

I know my local Catholic College offers religious studies. You could call your local Catholic Charities office. I would imagine those who work with the general public have gone through some kind of training working in a Christian affiliated social services program.
