The price of failure

I have mentioned Neptune, the tidal power scheme, before and also how it proved to be not quite the raging success that had been hoped. A few weeks ago I noticed that it was no longer moored just past the Deep and thought that it had gone for good. Imagine my surprise then to see this little boat with the unmistakable yellow cabin just chugging upstream the other day. Off to the scrapyard no doubt.


  1. It does sound like a white elephant, and someone pulled the proverbial plug.

  2. It's too bad, don't you think? I'd like to see someone figure out how to do this well so we could all be free from corporate oil, gas, etc.
