Hmmmm, looks like the person that designed it had blonde hair, white stilletoes, an ankle chain and an IQ smaller than the links on that chain that is attached to it, in fact that chain would do for our heads, the plug is currently loose and it looks about the right size.

I suppose it would be an ideal place to put your hanging baskets.......if the chain were stronger!

judging by the vegetation this is a very still freshwater inland waterway where a brick on a string will do as an anchor, a bit like the mud weights they use on the Norfolk broads.

On the contrary, this is in Cochin Harbour, India.....open to the sea. However, you are right in that it is mostly fresh water brought down by the monsoons, but there is quite a strong current most days - 3 hours of flood and 9 hours of ebb and the weed comes and goes with the tides.
