From the local newspaper, the "Camden Courier", 21 May, 2008:
"Max is a third generation fisherman, boat builder and timber worker, educated in the Camden Haven."

From MidNorth Coast Arts Council:
"Local artist Max Scott, was inspired by an old photo of a ship built at this site. Floodtide, is made of local timber and employs traditional ship building methods. Carvings and relieved images reflect Birpai totems, local history and the areas scenic beauty. The timbers used are identified by carved species names and past flood levels are marked on a piece of red mahogany nearby."

The plaque beside the sculpture reads:

This community initiated public artwork was supported by the Australia Council, Hastings Council, 4th City of the Arts, the Camden Haven Chamber of Commerce, Industry & Tourism, the NSW Ministry for the Arts and local businesses & individuals.
