      Surfcaster's 2016 Reboot!   09/21/2016

      Howdy, folks. I know this is way overdue, and the damage is probably already done, but after weeks of working with the database I've finally wiped out all of the spam posts and topics. This was no easy task, considering there were three-quarters of a million bogus posts and nearly three hundred thousand bogus topics. Once a hacker/spammer network finds a vulnerability, they send out automated programs that basically destroy a database like this. Over the past couple weeks I've migrated all of the good data into a more current, secure platform with the hopes that we can somehow rebuild. New member registration is tightened way up, and a third-party spam monitoring service is in place. I've also invested in an awesome new gallery extension,  allowing members to create, manage, and share image galleries. Please give it a try, and let me know if there are any issues. I'm still testing and working out the bugs. Surfcaster's forums were once an amazing resource for everyone to enjoy, and we're hoping it can once again build back up. The main site (non-forums) is pretty banged up, but once the forums are complete my next task is to re-invent that as well. Spread the word. Hope to see a lot of you back! Cheers, Andrew

Every year sea turtles get blown north in the gulf stream and end up on south cape beaches. The cold water sooner or later sends them into shock and usualy die, drown ultimately. All types of turtles get blown north leather backs may appear black or brown and some of them are yes, huge. I have seen them in the Gulf in the 80s when I was in the Coast Guard. I once saw a sea turtle in Boston Harbor over at a ship yard in East Boston in the 90s during a major storm. It obviously got blown in with it. The New England Aquarium has a program every fall where they try to rescue sea turtles from local waters and beaches.
