Default Ocean Wind Tug

Does anyone have the number for this public reef? I went to wear its supposed to be and did circles up to 500 ft and could not locate it. It was deployed last year in January.

Maybe you used the wrong format?

N30 10.990 W87 12.025

is the same position as

N30 10 59.4 W 87 12 01.5

One uses "Degrees, Minutes (and fractional minutes)"

The second uses "Degrees, Minutes, and Seconds"

The decimal is in the wrong place.

You want
30 10.992N
87 12.016W



The number from http://myfwc.com/media/131585/reefs.pdf (which I believe would have official state numbers) on page 21 of 78,
