Message 9 Release Date 01/22/2006
Released This message off of South Hampton at the Start of our trip on 1/22/2006. About 1/2 mile off of shore.
It was a clear beautiful day with a light wind from the North. There were a lot of surfers in the water dispite the cold.
Right after releasing the bottle I started finding fishing gloves in the water. I found 4 different pairs, 8 gloves total. They must have all washed off of commercial boat but it was very strange to find them one after another scattered over about 200 yards. There were some cardboard boxes and other debris, so maybe a boat had had some problems.
