Over the weekend a dead whale (very decomposed) was spotted by marine biologists (Cascadia Research) conducting survey work funded by the US Navy. I asked for the location and they replied on their Facebook page. The location was 22 deg 23.14'N, 159 deg 36.45'W. You could see land in the background of the picture so it is not too far offshore (also the survey work is done from a rib so they do not normally stray too far offshore in normal trade wind weather).

If I get any updates I will post, Good luck.

The currents don't look too favorable to push it our way, I hope the Kauai BOYZ are hammerin' it...
