The story of Dead Bod....

Some time in the Swinging Sixties, fun and games were also taking place up north in Hull. One evening in a drunken prank, skipper Len "Pongo" Rood and engineer chum Gordon Mason took a pot of white paint and graffitied a crude image of a dead bird, feet upturned, on to a corrugated iron shed in the city's Alexandra Dock. The legend of Dead Bod was born.

Ever since, Rood's painting has stood the test of time, becoming such a noticeable landmark that fishermen navigating the waters at the mouth of the Humber Estuary used it to help them reach shore.
