Thanks, just ran through there sure would have sucked to hit that with a boat heavily loaded down with camping gear.

It is still there

I almost found it the hard-way Sunday afternoon.
There was no way to tie a marker to it. So be careful. At times it is completely submerged.

Have someone run out there with a flat nose cat boat & take a rope with a slip knot & plastic jug & tie it to it. **** post is going to make a mess out of someone's rig or injure some people.

I have notified the Coast Guard about the one in Saluria, #33 I think, and the one in Fishermans cut. Was told (finally) that yes they are hazard, and it is not their responsibility, check with the state. I have written a letter to the person at TPW that is over this department, can't ever get him on the phone, but just recently sent it to him. Anyone wanting his info, please let me know. I personally think it is ridiculas that someone in some official capacity has not at least put some type of marker on these hazards until they can be repaired.

Thanks for doing that! I have seen the USCG repairing/replacing channel markers on the Palacios channel from the ICW back towards Palacios so I figured it would be them. In any case one would think that they would be concerned with a boating hazard. Duh?

N 28 23.459 W096 29.040 Should it be 28° 23' .459N 096° 29' .040W This is the way my Raymarine reads: degrees-minutes-and the seconds are in decimal.

I'm not familiar with Raymarine, but there are only three ways to write out coordinates (unless you're in state plane coordinates, but that's surveying):

Decimal Degrees (DD.ddddd°)
Degrees Decimal Minutes (DD° MM.mmm')
Degrees Minutes Seconds (DD° MM' SS.ss")

If you need the OP original coordinates in degrees minutes seconds you need to multiply the numbers to the right of the decimal point by 60 so you's get:
N28° 23' 27.54", W96° 29' 2.4"

That kind of hazard could put the serious hurt or even kill someone. Thanks for locating and reporting this.

Not sure who is supposed to take care of all these damaged navigation markers. In POC we're just used to seeing them bent over after getting hit by passing boats. It's like the Coast Guard doesn't care...meanwhile in Florida the little port towns I fish on the Gulf, smaller than POC, all have well-lit flashing steel girder day markers that are never bent over. I know the POC coasties currently aren't being paid, but the problem there has been going on for decades and is getting worse.

Twenty years ago we were fishing a channel and whump! actually saw a boat knock down a day marker mounted on a telephone pole in Stuart, FL on the Atlantic side. It was floating out with the tide. We called the Coast Guard and told them we were towing it to shore. They came right out to secure it.
