<font color='#810541'>We found this drifting off the coast of Bermuda while out on a dive trip.

I have investigated the object and am in the process of returning it to the owners but thought you might like to take a guess as to what it is (or not??). We had fun trying to figure it out.

Answer will be posted next week.

It doesn't look like anything that should be in the water to me - looks more like an industrial chimney

Hmmm... it's the Nautilus from Stoney, isn't it?

<font color='#810541'>yeah it is scientific and it does collect data but data from what.... ??

now it gets boring.... doh! I was looking forward to more "whale suppository" type guesses


I think it looks more like a whale dildo!

Tilt head to left...it does have quite a phallic shape to it

Is it one of the weather beacons. Used to measure sea state, wind speed etc..

If it is, then it was probably trashed by the latest Hurricane that went through the East Coast USA.

OK

is the clue in the question? Were you in the Triangle? Is it from the future? Or is it an escapee from a theme Park Ride?

<font color='#810541'>Yes!!! it is from the year 3056 where men don't exist anymore, the sea levels have risen over the land, and all the women ride around in the ocean on big orange willies! :)

Dive Safe, whatever Century you are doing it in.

<font color='#0000FF'>I'd say it's some seismic measure thing. Either the gun or the data collector.

Worth a shot. Do I win a ride in (not ON as Lisa suggested) it if I'm correct?

The problem with that idea is that it appears to be floating..
