I bet the CG love this guy!

Some of you may have already seen these but i figured i would share them for those that have not....
Not quite RIB related but worth a look never the less.
The pictures were taken near me in Granville on the West coast of the Cotentin peninsular in Normandie, France
Hats off to the guy for his imagination but would 'nt you just love to listen to Ch16 when he's out and about?
(The boat isnt actually registered as its technically a piece of 'art' so not sure if he does actually take it out other than for photo shoots)......not sure of its seaworthyness either mind you

I've seen this thing doing the rounds on the net but didn't realise it was in our area!

Hi Matt
Yeah, i saw a video clip of this when it was first 'launched' some time ago but the pictures were sent to me again the other day...
Its a French 'artiste' called Julien Berthier who designed it and it was sitting in a art gallerie but not sure of its current whereabouts...

Or sick pigeon as the case may be..

Yep, no matter how hard i try, i just cant relate to this 'Tate Modern' stuff....i guess its just the engineer in me prefering to seek logic rather than use my imagination............or maybe im just too thick!
