The canons just inside the reef, east of Saba. Did they survive the hurricane, the marker buoy still there?

I spent about an hour looking for them at the beginning of this month, with no luck. Does anyone have GPS coordinates or any other method of locating them?

Last time I tried I came from the East inside Eustacia reef and anchored the dinghy just short of the first (East) reef pass and the cannons were only a few feet away, but some luck may have been involved.
