one of the most beautiful towns on the French Riviera
Ports and Yachts
It's a plastic barrel used in towing barges or boats without engines. I tried to find some help from your previous postings, no luck ;)
Is it some kind of an anchor?Anyways, love the blueness of the photo!Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments. Have a great weekend!joy
A buoy. Channel marking.
My bad luck... I think I know what it is, but I just don't know the english word. Is it a buoy? That's what I found in my dictionary...
I have no idea! But I adore the colour and sense of languid movement in the water.
I think the first answer is the right one. So you're going to write to Finland!
Oh darn. I want that postcard so badly and all I can come up with is a marker of some kind to maybe keep boats out of an area.
Well, I doubt that I could accurately depict its purpose and, since I just got up on this side of the world, I'll need a little time if I make any kind of creative or viable comments. So, I'll just enjoy the blueness of the water and dream about your fair city!
c'est deux bateaux qui jouent au tire à la corde ;o). j'attends la reponse. bon weekend
I think it is a weight to keep the rope between the boats taught.
I would also say it's a buoy. But that seems too easy of an answer for a competition. Good luck to all!
No one is anywhere near it yet. A bit of lateral thinking is needed perhaps? (I'm enjoying this!)
It's a canister used to hold bait or catch for the local fisherman.
My guess is that this is a buoy supporting the underwater nets that trap the rubbish that floats into the local beaches.
some kind of water tester
It's a cooler full of cold beer! Oh, but the water's warm not cold so that can't be it. Hmm. I have no idea, but love the water.
Is it part of a tug of war game? :)
I reckon, that's what Olivier said ?But, I like Jill's idea the best.
Steve is the nearest but still we need more specifics!
An alien egg-sack incubating hundreds of these?
It is between two boats and it is to prevent the boat from bouncing in the waves.
Is it some type of anchor float retrieval system that makes it easier to haul up the boat's anchor? The line's angle suggest one end is tied to the boat. I'll be interested in finding out what this is. Nice one, Jilly!
When people motor out to the larger boat, on a smaller tender, this could be the buoy where they tie up the smaller craft. There is a smaller line attached for this purpose ?Something will attach to the smaller rope. Perhaps the keys to the beer fridge !!
mmm ... a weight to keep the ropes between boats taut ... Steve's the closest ...For starters, judging from the size of the ropes, this blue-thing is not very big. My guess is that the round metal knob is its own weight or anchor. And I can't see weather-beaten yachtie types being able to get their fingers through this to tie up on a regular basis. Also, neither of these ropes appear to be particularly taut.My guess is that it is something to do with fisher-nets ...
If a second guess is allowed, here is mine: this robe-canister combination is used when boats are moved sideways in pier. The canister slows down moves of a boat, so it gets not too much speed.I truly hope this is a correct answer ;)
I think it may be a weight to hold the ropes in place.
I'm probably too late to win a prize but it looks like a bouy to me. But I have no earthly idea what they are for except to mark some areas.
