Default Missing containers? - stuff washing up on beach now

Went out on the beach this morning south of FP inlet - 100's of packages of ramen noodles all over the beach! Heard up in Brevard that packages of Café Bustelo Cuban coffee are washing up. I'm assuming these are probably from a couple of the containers that washed off a barge offshore a few days ago.

It's like a college student's dream come true!

Must have lost a whole container full of them. That insurance claim could be for tens of dollars.

Would the barge's owner be responsible for the cleanup of the contents?

I wonder if you can use them as targets for gun practice as they float in. Sealed contained is worth taking a shot at!

It depends on the cargo contained inside... Sometimes enough air is trapped in the cargo (e.g. coffee cans) to provide just enough buoyancy for the container to remain afloat (semi submerged really)...

Ramen and Coffee.
College all over again.

Then after College when I was paying student loans
Then after paying daycare + more student loans.
Then after paying Pre-paid College tuition for my kids
Then after paying for major medical events

Who am I kidding. That's gourmet food even today...

Cafe bustelo is good coffee and it's still cheap....I wonder how long a can or brick will last after being in the salt water.
