The CDIP 142 buoy that we use for all the front page graphs and data has drifted offsite. Hopefully we'll see the data again soon.
betcha location turtle towed it away.
I bet the bolinas locals stole it like they do there signs
saw a guy on a funboard grasping onto what i thought was a crabtrap to avoid the current. maybe that was it?
What the hell are those ropes attached to buoys that have been out at OB in the m i d d l e of the beach? They've been there for months? Certainly no crab traps?
No idea what the buoys were originally intended for or who placed them but I like having some short-range fix-points in addition to lining up with whatever I can make out on the shore.
I would think they are crab (or fish) traps. Up to now, I've been respecting them - back in the day, messing with another man's trap could get you shot - but I gotta say, they've clearly drifted from where they were dropped, and are now a hazard. I'm sorely tempted to pull them and see if they're filled with dinner. Although yes, they do make good lineup markers/current fighters.
Crab traps then!? Are they a hazard? That's what I've been trying to figure out...
