Eastern Florida Buoy/Marine Observations

Buoys
41010--If you are not a Facebook friend of ours, you likely do not know that this buoy washed up in Spain in February—yes Spain! Check out our post about it. We have not received any news about if/when the buoy will be redeployed.

41012--was decommissioned in February and there are no plans to redeploy it at the present time.
