    Offshore yesterday spotted this in the Gyros, came up to it and it was some from of floating board. Had solar panels on the top, had a bent over running light, and the big surprise was the large white colored mass below it.

    There was no markings or writing on it, we suspected some form of drug transport thingy.

    Did not mess with it.

    Awesome! Thanks for the link.

    Wonder why they are not marked in some form or fashion?

    Probably don't want a flag due to it would catch the wind and cause too much resistance. Probably don't have lights due to they don't want to use the electricity for anything except propulsion and or communication.


    I did see on the news a couple weeks ago a tug boat headed back to SD from SCI stopped an picked up one of these things that was out in the channel & he brought it back to SD. I think it was a class project from Oceanside or San Clemente high school.



    Why didn't we do cool shit like this back in high school???? LOL

    :rofl: Capt. Z, I fucked that thing up on Tuesday. We spotted it in our $100.00 binos :) and trolled a circle around it, then I buzzed it.

    A marlin lure and a cedar plug went right over the top, momentarily snagged it and spun the thing around 180 degrees.

    It started heading back where it came from, it was running downhill before it met me. Whoops.

    I figured I ruined a million dollar science project. :hali_olutta:

    I don't even own a camera. LOL
    You might notice the threads that I'm in with pics are always on my friends BD accounts.
    Blame Simon for not taking a pic. He had his camera....:slap:

    I was watching a TV show in on Shark researchers in HI. that was deploying these things to map Ocean currents. I wonder If they want them picked up to download the data??
