Locals and visitors are having a big time on Hilton Head Island’s Coligny Beach getting a first hand view of a Coast Guard buoy.
During hurricane Irma the buoy washed ashore and it is not an item that can easily be sent back to its home with a weight of 13,000 pounds. For anyone that ever questioned the strength of these hurricanes here’s the proof that they can take you for quite a ride.
