    Default What tha ?

    Out in front of the karankawa cove geotubes there is a large circular concrete structure covered with oyster shells. It is marked with a large post so it's not a huge danger. Does anybody know what the heck it is?

    There is a 3rd spot like the two between Jamaica Beach and Pirates-the two between Jamaica Beach and Pirates are pretty obvious except on really high tide. There is a third spot that is about 15' off the Geotube-about the second individual geotube up (NE) from near George Sealy's house (cedar house on end of Jolly Roger). That spot is surrounded by oysters and is about 1' -1.5' deep at normal tide-you'd have to be darn close to the geotube to hit it. Ya better have a very shallow running boat or yak to get to that spot/obstruction. Also, near the end of the geotubes by Sealy's house used to be a warning sign about the geotubes-the sign is gone, but the 4x4" posts are still there and under water except at very low tide-was above water at normal tide, but pretty sure some folks have "shortened" them with their boats-MORAL OF THE STORY-don't run close to the geotubes-many debris and other obstructions are near them.

    Thanks for the coordinates. My GPS is down at the beach house, but I'm assuming the two hazards between Jamaica Beach and Pirate's are the two rectangular structures that I was taught to call sunken duck blinds. The one right at the end of Jolly Roger 15' off the tubes is the one I was talking about, I was just curious if anyone knew what it was. I run my little scooter pretty close to the south shoreline for obvious reasons and I'm trying to mark as many hazards on my GPS as I can for running at night. I'll be glad to post the coordinates of all the ones I've got so far, and I think it would be cool if y'all could too. Thanks again.

    Yep Saltandlime:

    I was referring to that one close to Jolly Roger, but in the bay, just outside the geotubes. I got real close to it on a good high tide and it looked like a circle of oysters-maybe an old tractor tire or duck blind? It'd be kind of hard to hit unless "stupid" affected ya since it's about 5-10 feet from geotube and no one should ever run that close to those.

    I don't have coords for it.
