    From wikipedia:
    "One of the main beneficiaries of the sea serpent was A. B. Walker, the owner of the Walker Hotel in Silver Lake. When the Hotel burned down in 1857, firemen discovered the remains of the legend: a large mass of canvas. He had constructed the entire monster in order to attract business to the lake. It was said he got the idea from a Native American legend. The town holds a festival dedicated to the serpent even though it is now a harmless cartoon, similar to the Loch Ness Monster."

    How could that much wet canvas be manipulated in the manner of the sea serpent in the article.
