  • Floating mermaid dock drifted over from Key West -- but whose is it?

The Coast Guard has found the owners of the missing mermaid dock floating in the Gulf of Mexico, and it turns out the dock traveled quite a ways.

An HC-144 Ocean Sentry aircraft spotted the detached dock about 180 miles south of Grand Isle on August 2 after receiving a report of the small floating building drifting on the open water.

An airplane crew from the Coast Guard Aviation Training Center in Mobile, Alabama, went out to search for signs of distress. The Coast Guard also notified other vessels in the area that the dock was adrift.
