The submarine

IMG_6270

What could well be a piece of modern sculpture is, in fact, an abandoned attempt to build a submarine by one of the more colourful locals.

The guy was evidently a bit of a dope fiend and when he wasn’t busy tending his illicit cannabis plots, he’d be seen dragging lengths of steel down the road to the end of the peninsular and back along the estuary to his…er… shipyard.

His project was quite advanced at one stage, but was unfortunately brought to an abrupt end when his dodgy activities drew the attention of the local constabulary who succeeded in incarcerating him for a considerable period of time.

Never had quite the same drive when he came out and his project languished until the Grim Reaper came along and called a halt to it.

And there it sits to this day….
