No matter how we try to stop her, the sea is still flowing.

Failboats at rest

Failboats at rest

Some of you following me on Twitter have no doubt experienced the wonder that is Failboat Bay. Failboat Bay is a small, no-so-safe harbor near my house where abandoned boats tend to accumulate, run aground, and rot. Not all the boats are actually abandoned. Many are the result of unwary captains failing to realize that the bay is very shallow, subject to high winds, and full of so many derelicts that it is impossible to navigate - lets call is a recreational boaters graveyard. To further chronicle the adventures of Failboat Bay, I've created a small photoblog - Failboat Bay - to document some of the more magnificent wrecks.

These boats are a haunting reminder of the power of the sea. They were people's dreams, pleasures, and, in some cases, homes, and now they are left to rot, unsalvageable, in this deadly bay.


Failboat Bay

Beneath the wrack of a rubbish-line beach,
where derelicts rest at their end,
once proud, now bound by mud,
the long, sucking
embrace.

But from
their rust
and rot
soaked hulls
a sound.

The sound
of a thousand
crawling, clawing, creatures,
when lives rise from forgotten planks
to feed on the wrack where derelicts lie.

Hydrothermal vents, we often see the outside of them, covered in the rich and diverse communities that thrive in the chemical-rich waters or standing alone spewing fourth great black effluent. Below is the tip of a hydrothermal vent.

What do they look like within?

Heavy metals are deposited on the inner wall, including copper, nickel, zinc, iron pyrite, and gold.
