"Lost" boat

SevenweightSevenweight Posts: 93 Deckhand
I was out scalloping with a guest today (August 13) and had to abandon my boat at these coordinates. The coordinates are from the screen of the boat that was assisting us. I went out at dusk with Windsplitter (Duane) at dusk today and we were not able to locate it, however we did not have an operating GPS and I was not able to convert these coordinates to the system used by the GPS app on my mobile phone so we likely didn't search the right area. The boat was being towed when we decided to anchor it because of the rough weather. There was really no choice without endangering the people on the towing vessel. The boat is a 16-foot khaki-colored G3 aluminum jet with gray Bimini and a casting platform on the bow. I'm undertaking efforts to locate it but I'd appreciate a phone call or text from anyone who may have spotted it. Mark Myers ... 703-328-5843. Here are the coordinates where it was anchored from the assisting boat's GPS: 
N 28 36.798'
W082 44.949'
