"We have the most beautiful boat!"
Prosecutors say Walter Kendall Myers and his wife Gwendolyn were "true believers" in Cuba's socialist government. I haven't seen any evidence that Cuban authorities paid them. But a photo of their boat is floating around on the Internet and some people will probably jump to the conclusion that their spying helped pay for it. Gwen wrote:
We have the most beautiful boat! We sailed the good ship Helene on the Bay for 4 hours. Kendall sailed then napped for an hour on a pad behind the helm’s seat. I used a finger to occasionally touch the wheel while the boat sailed herself. Clouds were esmerizing.
The boat's Swedish manufacturer, Malö, says its custom-built yachts are for "connoisseurs." A company brochure says:
At Malö Yachts, we know that you know boats and only want the best. That’s why we build our boats the way we do.
I wonder what one of those babies costs.
