    Anyone seen this before?

    Love-love is the permanent and mobile image of a wrecked ship that has become a functional and safe leisure object.

    Hi,

    I will second the vote on weird, especially when it looks to be underway and then in it's berth like a normal boat.

    The more I think about this, the more I think there must be some special effects on the film. Looking at the amount of boat which should be underwater, I don't think it would be able to enter the marina. Also, there is little evidence of navigational aids and I doubt if it would pass any seaworthiness tests!

    It appears to be "fit for purpose." What more can you ask for?

    I'm all for the weird and wonderful and I actually find the latest 'Foster' incarnation growing on me.

    I am also very keen on freedom of expression - except where this results in the individual being led away by men in white coats!

    Thus my suspicion has been confirmed: Some people really will do anything for attention. :rolleyes:

    That is strange...Safe? I don't know. We have refloated a few boats and put them back in service with new wireing and a couple of fresh engines and they worked out great. But they were boats like whalers and aquasports. That boat is strange I wonder where you put the zincs lol

    I think that what's under water may look more conventional than we think. Still begs the question 'WHY?' though. Then again Ft. Lauderdale has seen an airplane body, a bus and a boat made of garbage. So why not? Wonder how you advertise that for sale.:rolleyes:
