Default Missing marker

Folks,

Is there an email for Marine Patrol to report missing markers?

Not a big deal but there's been one missing at the West Alton sand bar for 2 years now.

Thanks.

Have one missing here also. Marine Patrol guy came and stated that it is no longer necessary.
That there is no appeal.
He and he alone makes the determination of where markers go.
Note: It's been there since the 1940's. And no, the rocks/ledge have not moved.

Interesting .....

Granted I am using a somewhat dated Chart, but then again my GPS also shows it ... there has been a Black Top missing from the North west edge of Saunders Bay for a couple of years ......

I still don't dare venture inside where my GPS indicated it use to be

Well, the problem is that I had MP tell me that the 150ft markers went straight across from the markers in front of the homes all the way to the channel. The missing marker cuts in to follow the shoreline into the channel. To top it off, the cement is still sitting on the sandbar with some nice jagged wire cable that someone is going to get hurt on.

I mentioned it to them this weekend and he said he'd report it but I figured I would follow up with an email.

I first noticed the missing buoy off Dockham Shores Road in 2012. I wrote the MP after my fall survey in 2013. In early 2014, I met with the MP and they declared that the buoy had been decommissioned. In looking through my notes, I can't find any indication of a serious hazard behind this former buoy. My hunch is that it was initially placed there at the request of local resident.

As for other posters in this thread, could you be more specific as to the location of the missing buoys. You can email me directly, if you wish.

I just noticed today that the black top outside our house in lady maiden cove, Meredith bay is gone. It was there yesterday!

I swam out there last year and saw a lot of boulders. Standing on one or 2 of them left me about 3ft of water clearance.

Anyway didn't know where to report it and the numbers for MP were not relevant for this so I thought I'd let you know.

Default Missing Buoy

I contacted Marine Patrol on three different occasions beginning in mid-June on a missing black buoy (there were two, one is missing since ice out) on the east side of Long Island just out from Harilla Landing by Lands End. Each return call, they noted they had received the previous call and it was on the list. As of last week, it still hadn't been replaced.

Anyone know how to escalate this? I'm worried with fall approaching and low water levels, this could cause some problems.
