A beautiful time aboard Catatonic anchored at Dawg Rock yesterday. So glad so many great friends came in support of this special day.

So very cool. Sad I couldn't make it, but I'll be sure to come by to pay my respects in April.

What's the actual depth on those "rocks"?

The surf was down, so I managed to stand on the flat part of the rocks and found about two feet of water under the surface. I dove all of the area East of the marker and found plenty of water. As always, you should give the marker a safe distance when rounding Dawg Rocks as there is some scope on the line, but at it maximum distance with an Easterly breeze, the buoy should be about 10 feet east of Dawg Rock.

Marker was set at 18 26.127' N 64 42.320' W

I understand memorials, but tampering with aids to navigation - what could possibly be wrong with that?

For those that aren't familiar with the back story, this was not a tampered with existing navigational aid, this was just placed there by TTOL members because there was no identifying aid marking this rock outcropping. The rock was hit previously by Mark during a Cat Fight a few years ago, and incidentally a source of a lot of razzing and luckily not a lot of boat damage. Thus becoming a fitting "memorial" as well. I can assure you if Dirk placed the marker it is secure and correct! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Clapping.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Clapping.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Clapping.gif" alt="" />

There are few of us who will have this kind of memorial placed for us upon our passing.

Huge hugs and kudos to those who made this happen.

Cant get over the kindness of some people. Just spoken to Rusty from Moor Secure and they are going to look after Dawg Rock and renew anything that needs to be renewed. One big shoutout for them <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Clapping.gif" alt="" />

What huge respect for a guy who was big as life and just as real.

I hope Catfight calls that marker " Sir Mark" forever.

In April we will be sure to show our respect for Mark and toss him a rum drink.

Big thanks to all that made this happen.

Very cool tribute! Never met Mark, but chatted with him here on TTOL a number of times. He will be missed, but remembered!

Knowing Mark, pouring rum into the water he would yell "Alcohol abuse" Every time I poured out a small amount of warm beer, he would yell at me, all joking, of course

So glad Moor Secure has agreed to do their party - thanks for taking care of that Nick!!! It was REALLY a great day...had a great time with Dirk, Sandy, Lynn, and Nicole afterwards at Diamond Cay. I am so happy for them that they were able to make the trip down. It was so special for them both.

Is the marker still there? We today sailed nearby Sandy Cay but didn't see anything. Maybe we looked at the wrong place?

Let's see if this works. Here are photos of the buoy taken last week - located just off the eastern tip of Sandy Cay. Looks like the signatures have all washed off.

This marker is washed up on the beach at Hans Lollik. Saw it there in April 2018.

Seems when you talk about "The Beach" the is only one....

1 | Hans Lollik Beach
Hans Lollik Beach is a secluded beach located just off the northern coast of St. Thomas on the uninhabited islands of Hand Lollik.
While getting to the island may take a little bit of planning, those who go will be rewarded with a pristine beach offering stunning views and nearly absolute privacy.

This beach is located 3.9 miles (6.2 km) north-northeast of the center of Charlotte Amalie, on south east side of Hans Lollik Island.

Good luck in your search.

If you do choose to look for Dawg's Buoy on the big beach on Hans Lollick, watch out for the surrounding reef and rock. A small boat can enter from the south. There are two other small beaches to the north of the point at the east end of the big beach that could have possibly snagged a floating buoy. Not sure of the best way to access those.

Yea it’s on the larger beach on the south end of Hans Lollik, not the small beaches. Here’s a photo:
