Hanauma Bay posse member Jaime called at 0935 to advise of an animal at Toilet Bowl.
When I arrived at 1013 I found Buster (RV08).
Also at 0935, Gayle Matsuda called to advise that she was with Kaiwi (RK96) doing 8 minute dives at Spitting Cave.
I got back to Makai Pier at 1120. I found Kea (RN46) & Kolohe (RW22) together at Seal Rock Inlet.
At 1218 RG32 would haul out to join Kainoa , right of 3BS.
When I got back to Makai Pier, I found that I’d missed some action. Apparently, a boat, belonging to guys surfing at Rabbit Island, had been flipped by increasing waves and strong north winds. As I arrived at the pier I found HFD along the road, and my associates at the pier told me what had happened. I found a capized boat, and a Lifeguard jet ski mid channel. Initial efforts were about trying to turn the boat over, but that didn’t happen so it was towed back to the pier. A diving boat happened to be returning at the same time, and after much effort they managed to get the boat turned over.
At 0852 Team Billand advise of a foraging animal off shore of Campbell Industrial Park. At 1017 they confirmed the Pohaku(RO28) ID.
At 1153 the Billands report 2 foraging animals off shore of Maili Point. They were unable to ID the animals. They saw and reported to DOCARE an unattended net. A DOCARE officer came later in the day, but nothing was done, citing rough conditions.
A Lusi Perry text at 1224 reported the brief appearance of an animal to Fort Hase Beach, MCBH. Apparently, Tony & Beth saw the animal. Awaiting further word.
