Had a big wind storm come up last night and it blew my Hobie Tandem Islander mast and sail off my dock - I stupidly did not tie it down - the weather was fine when I went to sleep. Not sure how far the mast and sail might float before sinking. I looked for it in water up to 5 ft deep but could not find it. It may be in water 15 -20 ft deep. Any suggestions about how to find it - how to retrieve it?
Thanks

Do you know someone with a drone that may be able to go looking on a still day?

Fish finder (sonar) might turn it up.

Thanks for the ideas. I will be out there this weekend and see if I can use a fish-finder to locate it
