Saturday 31st December, 10:12pm. Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre received a call from a local fisherman, reporting a 3-metre diameter x 1 metre metal drum adrift, approx 25 miles southwest of Gibb's Hill Lighthouse, sending helpful photo and position information of the object. Bermuda Radio commenced broadcasting a Notice to Mariners (NTM) warning of this drifting hazard, and requested further sightings be reported to Bermuda Radio, there has been no responses with updated position information. The Navigation Warning has since lapsed with out of date position information, but offshore fishermen in the area are requested to keep a sharp lookout and report any further sightings to Bermuda Radio.
