They're just trying to keep up with the Columbian drug runners.  Here's an actual boat that was confiscated running drugs.

That looks like an LCAK (LCAT?) Steve.  They used similar vehicles in Vietnam, dropped the idea, but brought it back for beach landings in Desert Storm.  I saw a feature on them - fantistic!

I'll bet he's out of Little Creek.  My grand parents use to live up in Norfolk, gramp and father are retired Navy.   It was awsome as a young boy when we'd visit and you'd see all the ships, planes and now and again a sub.
Actually saw them doing landings one winter on the beach and thought no way man.  It's to dang cold to be gettin in water.

Here's one being launched from the mother ship! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuWCU7Xb00M&feature=related Pretty noisy though,..not exactly stealthy! Check out the payload it's carrying.
