  2. make a vacuum cleaner the size a vessel and hook it up to the stern of a ship make it as wide as the stern of a vessel and make it suck the oil and sew water or just oil through and have it shoot into a gigantic tank and dump it somewhere outside of the ocean, make it like an osmosis water machine only have it suck out the oil.
