Tom-Foolery!: Sinking Boat Not Really Sinking

sinking-boat-1.jpg

Artist Julien Berthier built a boat that looks like it's perpetually sinking even though it's not. Affectionately (literally) named 'Love Love', the boat is fully functional and Jaws-approved.

The boat has a built-in motor and is able to move around just like any other boat, albeit a boat that will draw a lot more attention than your standard dinghy. It was created by artist Julien Berthier, and he's since taken it out to all sorts of places such as Canary Wharf in London and Normandy, Francy.

First of all, I beg to differ that this boat draws more attention than a standard dinghy. Especially if said (sub)standard dinghy is my own and I'm pointing at it yelling "EVER-BODY, LOOK -- MUH DINGHY'S ON FIRE!" Secondly, Julien, if you built a boat that always looks like it's sinking, how can you tell if it really starts going under? That's some serious "Boy Who Cried Wolf" shit right there. You gonna get sexed by mermen, yo!

Hit the jump for a shot of the boat out of water.
