Cutting the top off the rig could form a giant, floating motorcycle wall of death for bored designers to ride their Ducatis and Vespas around. A Conran restaurant for the homeless could be floated off the South Coast; a James Bond villain could live in it, or Peter Stringfellow could open a nightclub in it. He could then continue his habit of living above the shop. Suggestions to the usual address please.
