Thanks a lot... took 1/2 hour to remove it from my prop... it's only 80 ft deep, you don't need 400ft of line on your marker - and it's nice to pick it up when you leave please. oh... and sinking line is kinda what you want when you drop a marker....

Playing the devil's advocate here:

there is a very good chance that they did not intentionally leave their bouy markers out there on purpose. The surface current has been absolutely RIPPING the past week or more, and I personally saw a boat lose their bouy marker. The bouy was sucked under by the current right in front of my eyes. They looked all around for it for maybe 30 minutes, as far as I know they never found it. I'm sure they weren't the only ones...

Would you mind too much sending it back to me, post paid of course?

That's a bummer!
