This odd collection of thingamajigs is set up off the end of a deserted dock on the lagoon side of the island. In the past we have surmised that they could be some sort of fishing contraption, or perhaps something set up for target practice...or maybe it's just "art." We don't have a clue. Has anyone seen this or know what it is?

Looks to me like a slalom kayak course.

Traning course for dolphins? or sharks?

They are too close together for kayaks to go around.
I tend to agree with SimonB and the target range, but they are quite close to the dock...wouldn't have to be much of a shot to hit them.

Has anyone else actually seen them? The dock is maybe 4 miles south of town.

Maybe some kind of measuring or intended for recording devices?
A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

Maybe there are something to attract fish below (or grow fish or shellfish?) and the red things are to scare birds away.
Other than that theory they local like targets to me.

Yes, we've seeen it. As far as we are aware, Simon is correct. It is a shooting range.

Definitely a shooting range, set up by local police and security guys and used by lots of other folks.

"wouldn't have to be much of a shot to hit them" It's for handgun practice, if you can easily hit ALL of those targets you'd be a good shot. The presence of cartridges pretty much confirms it's use.
