I released this message in the Hudson River around 23rd St. on an ebbing tide.
I forgot my camera, but I found this really nice top quality boat bumper, and brought it back with some difficulty. It weighs about 30 lbs, and is about 3ft in diameter. I saw it 4 days ago way uptown when I was on my bike, and I found it again hooked in some rocks around Gansevort St. I donated it to the Downtown Boathouse. New these things probably cost at least $50.
I did a trip for the New York Kayak Company. We paddled up from Pier 40 to 42nd St. in a really strong ebb tide.
We found the ball on the way back.
It was a really nice day, bright and sunny with 10kt SW wind.
Truth: It's good to see things one last time before they are gone forever.
