    Doesn't the placement method imply that these can be picked back up and moved if they need to be? Pump the water backin to soften up the quicksand and then pull it up and move it or reposition it if it got whacked by a big storm? Sounds like a geat and elegant solution. Also lower impact on environmentals in the area of installation.
