A whale skimmer

So perhaps with all the extra oil gushing into the Gulf since they removed the cap again, perhaps they should be putting to use giant tanker skimmer they are so skeptical about because it works better where there's a lot of fresh oil.  And maybe they are, but I have no way of knowing since the media does such a poor job of providing updates on details such as this.

Of course, there'd be more fresh oil concentrated in one place if they'd stop spraying toxic dispersant which are just making the problem worse.

Here are a few articles saying they've extended testing of A Whale.

and  which mentioned that it was able to keep skimming while the other boats quit due to rough seas, something television news programs have failed to mention.
