She doesn't have to wait for the tide. Her body weight will naturally cause the area around her to lower 1 metre. Grounded ship? Put her beside the ship. Problem Solved! Be careful with that crane though. If you move it too fast, the crane will snap to her weight and she'll cause a Sichuan Earthquake No.2.

Talk about some destructive lump of jelly!

Anyway.... my 100th post!

Love this one. I think a lot of the shots in this thread focus so much on the skyline that they lose the natural beauty of the Gold Coast. The beach, the water and the endless sunshine are unparalleled.

This is the best imo:

South East Queensland's recent boom has definately bolstered Brisbane and the Gold Coast's skylines up a great deal. There's quite a number of projects under construction in the Gold Coast currently but I can't wait for Soul, Hilton Surfers and the Oracle towers to be completed. They'll make a tremendous difference to the skyline.

The other towers currently under construction will make a difference too but after the completion of those three, Gold Coast should look like a little Dubai here (the first two are quite old):
