In fact, this is a funnel on water, the diameter of which reaches almost three meters. For example, American soldiers, recently saw it was suggested that such a hellish funnel could drag to the bottom reservoir (the military does not believe in the underworld) a medium-sized boat, not to mention the small water vehicles that enjoyed by many fishermen.
