Does This Belong To You?

A big yellow section from a floatation platform was found off Miami yesterday. Ryan Haines from the U.S. Coast Guard Station Miami is trying to locate the owners. Email us here at DSN ([email protected]) if this is your lost gear.  Also in the DSN lost and found box are 4 empty bottles of beer, a red stocking hat, and a can of naval jelly.
