Famous Wreck Backyards

For the pool scuba enthusiast
  (+13, -1)(+13, -1)

  [vote for,

Replicas of famous wrecks available for your own pool.

They had a band, but you have 8 channel surround playing in the backyard.

Likely solid (i.e. without penetratable chambers) to ensure safety.

Optional breathing chambers using dive bell technology for the more adventurous types with larger pools.

       Would this just be the wrecked ship, or would it reenact the entire shipwreck scene? If the later, wouldn't the icebergs make your pool a little chilly?

       Hmm, good question, [World]. Trying to avoid the "this was baked by Louis in Versailles" tag, I'll stick to settled wrecks on the pool floor.

       Very nice! It needs some interesting things to discover inside, like old log books, small artifacts and treasures, and of course, the inevitable skeleton behind door #2. Far more entertaining than my usual requests. “I see you’re a diver. Do you think you could recover the electronics from my sunken boat? I’ll pay you... Who me? - insurance fraud? - nooo, never.”

       The title of this Idea is "off". Because the type of wreck is for the pool more-so than for the yard. Now, if the topic of, say, wrecked trains was being discussed, "yard" would be OK.

       A great many rail yards, especially down the back end where they keep the hulks and decoms, can be described as very-slow-motion train wrecks.   

       I immediately thought 'trainwreck re-creations' as well, but given my background that's hardly surprising. When I saw the title, it made me think of a whitewater run we did on the French Broad River (I think) when we pulled our canoes up and ate lunch at the site where they filmed the wreck scene from 'The Fugitive'. There are still 2 or 3 stripped locos sitting by the tracks there.   

       I like the idea, too, though.

       You will need to build an apartment fo the full time pool cleaner.

       You could have Charlie Sheen, who could double up as a wreck.
