I really hope they find these guys. I read they located a tackle bag and cooler that belonged to the boat. It sounds like they are on the right track.

Read the thread...

If these pics are real, the CG should be all over it...at least review the buoy cam pictures to determine if it is fake or authenticate it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Check this out:

Go to
https://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=41013

Then follow these directions:

Link to source: EDIT: Look at the picture number, go open the current photo on the buoy page, replace last 4 digits with 0010 in browser bar.
(The link to source is the buoy 41013)
It will give you the picture from that time (0010UTC).

You cam clearly see it expanded:

Some things to consider here. 1) Frying pan shoals and weather buoys are attractive for fishermen. 2) Since they are attractive, boats moving through this area are moving at low speeds or bottom fishing. 3) Since they are attractive, the traffic is usually increased in these spots. 4) The photos are still shots, not videos. 5) The resolution is poor. 6) It is reasonable to assume boats seem to be disabled because of the nature of a still shot photo. 7) Maybe the most important point - since these areas inspire traffic, if a boat was actually in distress, it would likely be seen or heard by a near-by mariner and reported to appropriate authorities. 8) Finally - keyboard warriors calling in every picture of a boat they see at a buoy is a distraction to the search effort.

"8) Finally - keyboard warriors calling in every picture of a boat they see at a buoy is a distraction to the search effort."

This key board warrior says, "IF YOU SEE SOMETHING...SAY SOMETHING..."

I looked up the buoy cam shots off 41013 specifically because it's a choke point. When I saw the post on THT and the response a poster had calling the Coast Guard over the pic of what appears to be a boat down in the stern with a doughnut shaped object trailing...I followed the directions of another poster and "LEARNED" I could retrieve prior buoy cam pictures...imagine that.

I verified the questioned buoy cam shot was legit. I posted it here for enlightenment... I didn't call the Coast Guard and scream the sky is falling.

What I did notice is the GaDNR was quoted in saying they went 72 ish miles offshore searching...

The South Ledge is 72 miles from Savannah...80+ miles usually to the 100 fathom curve to get to the "Flotsam" that is most often present in the main push from the Gulf Stream...so there's that.

The fact that a boat goes missing 14 miles from land and only one object is found 50 miles off ST Augustine is troubling to this key board warrior.

As for the buoy cam pics, I use them to plan my keyboard fishing trips to determine wave height...look for birds/bait working. Being able to review past images is/was something I learned...from this tragedy.

Too bad I can't get the wind speed from the numerous Navy Towers off the coast of Ga. (that ALL of OUR TAX DOLLARS paid to be built) so I could better plan my keyboard fishing trips...and not guess about the weather off shore for this keyboard fisherman...and safety of his crew.
