Is that the same one that went off its anchor chain a while back and drifted all the way down to the Bahamas or some such place?

I dug up the old thread, back when we first noticed a couple of buoy's adrift. Looks like they were different ones.
44001, was replaced last year, and 44004 (hotel), seems to still be missing as far as i can tell.

Ya, 41025 is a really good buoy for the Outer Banks and a good indicator for south swells heading north.
Glad it is back, and it helps with the forecasts!
