closure on this "mystery nautical apparatus" AskMe thread? May 7, 2006 3:13 PM   Subscribe

Can we get some closure on this "mystery nautical apparatus" AskMe thread? I'm dying to know what this thing is. Did any of the commenters get an answer from their emails to the Galway port people?

It's the thing Chris Elliot has to ride in; it drags 50 feet behind the boat.

I liked the "canal boar" theory, but yeah, I've been waiting for resolution as well.

It's a tea ball. They drink a lot of tea over there.

It's the container for all the fish in quonsar's pants.

We can state with certainty that Galway has WMDs.

I still haven't received any responses from the folks in the Galway Flickr group. I was on vacation last week and hoped I would come back to an answer, but I was obviously disappointed. :(

I want closure, sometime during my life, on what lies beyond the Big Bang light cone.

I'm still waiting for Godot, too.

Damn, I'm glad someone else besides me was wondering about this one. It's like an unsolved mystery that just keeps hanging with no resolution...

It's Godot's escape pod, actually. Everything ties together.
