    no agenda

    Hello everybody.
    i have just found on my local beach ( Hayle in Cornwall UK ) a marker bouy. There are identity numbers on it and I am wondering If anybody could help me research the origin of the bouy. it appears to be a US style bouy and it is encrusted with mussels not native to the UK. The markings are a name, GRAHAM SPINNEY 77 and the number sequence is 643-2128. Hopefully someone may have some info for me.
    Many thanks in advance.

    So you piqued my curiosity...
    Here on Puget sound we are required to place our phone numbers on our crab and shrimp trap floats. The number sequence is typical of North American phone numbers without the area code prefix. I did a quick google search of “Graham Spinney” and found a record of a small claims court case regarding a lobster fisherman in Nova Scotia by that name. I’m not familiar with Canadian area codes; in our area there are so many that I have a different area code than my dock mates do. Perhaps in that Province there are so few that it’s not necessary to include them. It’d be interesting to see if Mr Spinney lost a trap and how long it took his float to navigate to the UK.

        Has anyone called Mr. Spinney in Nova Scotia, to confirm?
