I'm all for art I even did it at A level (teacher didnt "help" me though) but this borders on the bloody ridiculous, pardon my french, what are they thinking of. Still makes a good place to attach a lifebelt to.

That really is the most stupid thing I've seen since the guy who moored to Studland Rock warning buoy at high tide and went to sleep...

No doubt the tax payer will be picking up the tab for about 100 chart corrections or am I being a pedant?

Not to mention the instalation of a new Cardinal buoy, Oh for a few hundred feet of shaped charge, naturally all Ribnet members would be invited to this;

"piece of contemporary performance art comunicating the angst and inner tension of a middle aged man wracked with the inability to percieve the full breadth of a benign Orwellian state"

Barman! Prozac please and have one yourself!

Bet coastguards will love this
you betcha - last saturday night was at the height of the silly season. Whilst I was out around Blackpool and Fleetwood for persons in danger of being cut off by the tide/an attempted suicide/and a boat with a seized gearbox etc etc Crosby (liverpool) team was tasked to 3 kids stuck firmly in the mud after they had gone out at low water to look at the statues!

Must have too little to do.

So here goes;

100 statues 50 m apart. They must be sat on concrete or something. say 4 hours each to fit - need to be straight etc. say 4 people for each statue and a total of 150/hr with all their kit. double that because of cock ups and waiting for the tide thats 1200 to fit each one. plus materials so say 1.3 million to install

bargain I'd say

Oh plus 10 new navigation marks with lights.
