    Buoys repairing. Location of events unknown.

    Boats; ships; nautical; technology. Repairing buoys. 3 Men in small boat on ocean approach an object sticking out of the water; their boat bounces on the waves and it takes them a while to reach it; when they are stopped at the pole; one man starts to climb onto it. CU another crew of men; about 6 of them; work on a lantern in a large cage that bobs around in the sea; some of them are holding it up with a rope as one man climbs onto it and inside the cage to change the light -- which brings to mind many how many does it take to change the light bulb jokes CU pole and ropes going into water; pan up on buoy; with a pulley connected to it and the wires reaching upwards off screen. Then a shot of buoy bobbing in the water.
