Need help finding my 2013 FZR I had to abandon it 16 miles from Bimini. I was running out of fuel and in the middle of the storm that came through yesterday. It sucked a rope up wile trying to hook to the 108 foot yacht that rescued me. The coastguard literally told the captain to make me leave my ski and board the yacht. They said it might show up somewhere between Fort Lauderdale and the Carolinas. Message me if you hear anything and please tell your friends thanks Jerry Brown Junior on Facebook.

With his permission, I'm passing on the BOLO. He is stuck in Bimini, staying at Hilton. He and his buddy ski were separated in the storm, buddy ski had the Epirb, buddy turned back and was rescued 5 miles off Miami. He had extra fuel but lost it trying to refuel in the storm. He also left his passport and wallet on the ski... If you find it, message him on Facebook: Jerry Brown Junior or on the FB Group Florida Ski Riders. Glad he and his buddy are safe.
