The blockade runner

Blockade runner ORP Chmurka


Polish blockade runner ORP Chmurka (Bolivia, Lake Titicaca, 2013) – The Polish blockade runner ORP Chmurka seen after the successful crossing of the blocked Strait of Tiquina. The photograph shows the unit painted for camouflage purposes as a simple Bolivian fishing vessel. The deactivated Secret And Inaudible Locomotion System (S.A.I.L.S.) is clearly visible on that picture. The blockade runner was transporting some urgently needed supplies (beer and cookies) for the besieged town of Copacabana, but a heavy failure of the steering system forced the dehydrated and underfed crew to abort the mission on the 7th day, only 40 kilometers from its final destination.
