U.S. Navy Boat from Norfolk Was Found off Coast of Ireland

On Monday afternoon crew members from the western Ireland's Doolin Ferry Company spotted something bright orange floating in the water.

Upon further investigation is was determined to be a U.S. Navy boat floating off the coast of Ireland.

The boat had been lost during a training exercise off the coast of Virginia last September. The boat had traveled 5,400 km across the ocean.

It's a High Speed Maneuverable Surface Target that can be used remotely and is used as target practice by the Navy.
