Buoy #1 - Real Time Data

GSB Buoy #1
40o 41.9538' N Latitude, 73o 05.2032' W Longitude


Last winter's ice destroyed the buoy and its electronics.  After a complete rebuild
the buoy was returned on station on September 11, 2014.

As usual, thanks to Mark DeAngelis and the West Sayville Boat Basin for their
assistance in launching the buoy and keeping the system going.
