Reviewer notes

Use this space to describe your geocache location, container, and how it's hidden to your reviewer. If you've made changes, tell the reviewer what changes you made.

This cache has been archived.

Ministro: As there's been either no response from the cache owner, no cache to find or log to sign, I'm archiving it to keep it from continually showing up in search lists, and to prevent it from blocking other cache placements. If you wish to repair/replace/make available the cache sometime in the near future (next 30 days), just contact us (by email), and assuming it meets the current guidelines, we'll be happy to unarchive it.

Geocache Description:

This cache is a buoy that is anchored in the bay near Taren Point.

Tired of finding soggy cache contents even when the cache is located in a sheltered spot?

This cache is an experiment to see if a cache could be built that is totally waterproof even while continuously floating in water and often submerged by waves.

Check out the video of how it was created and placed here.

Note: The co-ordinates are taken where the anchor is located. The actual cache will move around this point with different currents and wind directions but it will be within the GPS resolution.

Please be careful not to drag the anchor. The cache is attached to the anchor rope with two carabineers and should be removed while you sign the log etc. The carabineers are attached to flotation so they won’t sink.

If you do drag the anchor, make sure the anchor is replaced back at the listed co-ordinates.

Nearby are some of the old oyster leases that date back to the 1920's.

The difficulty rating of 2.5 is because you may find it difficult to work with the cache while trying to stop your vessel from drifting.

My thanks to Usat31 for helping place this. It was quite rough and windy on that day, and it would have been difficult to do on my own.
