Govt. in a nutshell...spend $5k cruising down and blowing it to kindling.....OR $200K for a full-on rescue with helos, cutters, medi-vac...etc for the poor bastards that hit it.

As stated, it's in Mexico, I'm pretty sure there is just a little red tape with going and shooting at another vessel in another country's territorial waters. And it's full of foam, shooting holes in it isn't going to sink it, blow it up and you have 5,000 little pieces of foam that we are now responsible to clean up. Oh wait, it was full of fuel? that $5,000 just turned into a $500,000 environmental clean up. See why we aren't in a big rush to go get it?

Its a foam filled outrigger about (was) 20' long with about 1/3 of it broken off but still attached. You are not going to be able to sink it.

I called the CG from home and reported it's position....they did not seem too concerned....unfortunately. Maybe I should have told them about the large bales (I think I saw ;) ) tied to it..... LOL

We fished it on Saturday noonish. Saw some flashes under it, hoping for dorado, but but no biters.

That thing could ruin your day.

It was in Mexican water. Coast Guard only goes south for emergency or rescue, not to clean debris.

I think the us coast guard(united states) has lagislation with mexico that addresses these situations.
dont get me wrong about reporting it or not.
If you report it on ch 16 anyone driveing in that sector would have heard the #'s,hence no one hits it
we all monitor 16 at night i hope!!!!!!!!

There's a lot of floating hazards out there that we'll never see. Unfortunately this one, due to its proximity to the best fishing that we've had in years, and the large number of PB's (some without much experience) cruising through the area, almost makes this a "Chicken Little" moment. Slow down and pay attention and the sky won't come falling down.

Coasties have better things to do than police up flotsam that's 15 miles offshore and not a hazard in a high traffic shipping lane, but if the thing does get caught in a screw of one of those tankers going through the area or gets wedged under a 16ft Glasspar tri-hull they will come to your aid if truly need it.

Doubt if it would show on radar,at least MY radar. If you have a powerful enough unit,possibly.
Never trust RADAR, it is just a backup to WATCHING your own path.
Sometimes radar is all you got.A few years ago in October we were coming back north in pea soup fog.We were still 40 mile from Pt loma.You could not see 5 feet in front of you.It was like we were in a submarine....just staring at the radar.SD bay was even socked in.Ill never forget that night.

Ya know what I worry about running at night ...........Hitting a drug running sub designed to run at or just under the surface, painted black or blue with non reflective coatings!!!
Even if it doesn't take the bottom out of your boat, (which it will) chances are there are crazy bastards aboard with AK's and RPG's that will want to take you apart for ruining their shipment, or try to board your vessel if theirs is sinking

Sure call me paranoid ....its only a mater of time

    Hahaha!!! Mike your to easy to mess with. Don't take everything so seriously. Its just a web site and nothing on here will affect your daily life.

    Just like you constantly call me a big asshole, I know I'm not so I just roll with the punches as should you! Im pretty sure your not a real jerk as you come accross but then again, I don't really know you.
