Feared by sailors and pirates alike, the Gribble is apparently any one of 56 varieties of a marine isopod. The nasty little creature bores into wood to ingest as food, unfortunately all too often the Gribble's dinner was the planking or keel of a wooden boat.

This amusing statue, come seat has been a feature along the harbor side at Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight for a couple of years and always makes me smile.
