I bet its scrap value is a tiny fraction of the cost of replacing it. Where is it from?

All the ones here have signs warning of explosion danger. Presumably because of lead-acid batteries inside. That, and the fact that much of the American boating public are lawsuit happy idiots.

Belongs to Scottish Water. I'm probably paying for this in my next bill!

Loads of decent stainless steel 316 Allen key bolts and nuts holding it together. My eyes lit up like a magpie! Not sure if it's just a marker buoy?

Couldn't resist clambering onboard. It's the nipper in me!
