Default Found a drone offshore yesterday?!

120 feet of water, upside down in the sand been there a couple weeks, apparently flying off of a large sport fisher called THOMCAT out of Nashville.


Off Jupiter Palm beach area sd card worked. (unbelievably) Taylor Mayes owner with an address in Nashville.


I'd like to return if he wants it

Should have had a story to tell him, "Went out shark fishing when this Mako hooked up, fought him 2 hours, when we got him on board we heard an odd sound coming from it's gut, cut him open and out flew this drone!"

Crazy story. How did you get the drone? Scuba diving? Just stopped at a random location?

The fella sitting down in the blue shirt looks just about wiped out, while holding his two beers. He's praying for dry land.

SD cards are pretty tough. I found this phone rolling in the surf and I was able to get enough information from the SD card to call the owner. I got his father and the son never called me back.

Pretty common down here. Even the Hullbilly is listed out of Nashville since its the owners "home port"

I see several boats out of Colorado.
