we are sinking
March 3, 2010
This is what the harbour normally looks like, from my office window.
And so, one morning...
As a second mast appears, you realize the size of this thing.
scuba divers hook up more lines
And with additional lifting from the shore...
...the boat appears.
watch the uplifting in superspeed (3825 kB movie file)
time to start pumping out the water
beat up and completely soaked...throughout
Some boat owners suddenly start caring for their boats, removing some ice.
others are not quick enough
A few days later...something else is wrong?
What's that mast?
Here we go again.
lifting from both ends
New boat, different puzzle.
A diver goes down to attach air balloons to the boat.
As they fill them with air, the boat surfaces.
A peek inside...a cookie jar floating around.
