Default Massachusetts break up be careful !

So we went out yesterday and just northeast of the Massachusetts we see birds pounding the water and something breaking the surface we head over and saw what we thought was a big shark breaking the surface and going back down, tried easing in closer to see what it was and it was the entire top circle of the smoke stack just drifting in the current and heading towards shore, someone would have a bad day if they hit that just a heads up. Then we proceeded to catch these two triggers, the one was a STUD !!!

That is a pic I would love to see, and I wonder where it ended up?

I might have tried to tie a line to it, and drag it home.

So a steel stack weighing hundreds of thousands of pounds was floating on the surface drifting off with the current

What you seen was the mount
For the gun turret. Nothing was drifting that's been there for 42 years that I know of. Several boats have run into it. The last one that I know of is the Entertainer.
