There was an address on the buoy, but no phone number. We had hoped to call the owner on the spot and see what he wanted us to do.
It was stuck tight! Al wound the line around our windlass and pulled s-l-o-w-l-y.
He felt it give, and soon brought up a sizable branch....was there a whole tree down there that had been holding on to it?
Al 'googled' the address on the buoy and was able to find a phone number associated with it. It was a business. He left a message, and we hope to hear back from them -- perhaps today when they return to work?
Good deed for the day is done.
