Sinking Boat !!

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."

LOL! How would you navigate forward? Oh I see, the boat has an opening in the front if you look at the other pics. Still dont think I would starve for that much attention.

It looks like a strange set up functionally, the engine must work in reverse. If you look at the pictures when he is driving the boat he looks toward what was the bow, but the picture of the boat out of the water shows the engine pointing toward the stern.
