French artist Julien Berthier has designed a fully functional boat to look as if it is sinking. The 6.5m (21ft) yacht was cut in half with a new keel and motor added so it remains in the sinking position while being fully functional. He describes it as 'the permanent and mobile image of a wrecked ship that has become a functional and safe leisure object.'
Of course, it reminds us of that advertisement a couple of years ago, with the punchline 'what are you sinking about..?' And as someone pointed out - 'bet the Coastguard loves this feller!'
