This boat is imitating an emergency situation, not unlike calling mayday over VHF or shooting flares as a prank. Other mariners are likely to put themselves in a difficult or dangerous situation trying to help when nothing is wrong.

It's a pretty silly/interesting art project, but I think it would be irresponsible to use it in public waterways and make people think your boat is really sinking.
