Seems like some people are coming down pretty hard on this guy. He's obviously just an artist doing his thing. Yeah, maybe it would have been more
legal to take it out elsewhere, but then again, imagine if his studio is right outside the shipyard. It would seem like a hassle to have to tote it
out of town just to get it in the water and test it out. Plus, for all we know, they may have been trying to tow it somewhere that was a little less
trafficked, and they just hadn't had it out very long.
I'm betting that when they were caught next to the cruise ship, they just saw it as a great photo op. I mean who doesn't some times break the rules
when they see a good opportunity. Once, at the Titanic museum, when nobody was looking, my friend and I reached over the railing and touched "The Big
Piece". Sometimes you do stuff just to say you have done it.
As the NYPD Commissioner put it, they were just "three adventuresome individuals" getting into some "marine mischief". No harm done. Give these
guys a break.
