After traveling 60 miles through an open expanse of the Gulf of Mexico, you see a small red speck on the horizon.

You point your boat towards the object and the closer you get, a circular, red, cross-wired floating apparatus appears into focus. You ease even closer to read a bright white sign with red letters that reads 'OKALOOSA 6 KEEP OFF'. As you peer into the depths you can see that this apparatus extends almost 20 feet below the surface and the top half is filled with red buoys that are floating on the surface.
