    FL - Guma Aguiar, 35, Fort Lauderdale, 19-June-2012

    There was a body found in Biscayne Bay this morning but it sounds as if the body has decomposed for a few days and can't be Mr. Aguiar.

    "Detectives investigating the case said the face is decomposed."

    “Looks like he’s been in the water for a few days,” said Detective T. Cepero."

    There is a tropical low in the middle-west of Cuba all the way thru the lower part of FL. Been a while since I've sailed (and that was in the Gulf of Mexico) so not familiar with the currents. A 31 foot vessel might have a problem. Does it say anywhere that he was an experienced boater?

    Southsleuth,
    I read or heard that he was an experienced boater but now I do not know where I may have read it, sorry.

    ETA: Found it.

    "One of Aguiar's attorneys, Fred Haddad, said his client is knowledgeable about boats."

    dsntslp-Thank you! I read the articles but was more concerned trying to figure out the boat that was found capsized. The one's I read made it sound like a 31 ft yacht, and had to do a "Do What" turn around, until I figured out it was the tender, not the yacht he took out. I'm afraid he drowned.

    Ohhh, the tender is the 31 ft boat they use to go back and forth from the yacht to land.

    "The U.S. Coast Guard is working with local authorities in their search for Aguiar, which is spanning at least 3 miles offshore from where his vessel, the T.T. Zion was found."
    "WPTV in Florida reports that the T.T. Zion is a tender for Aguiar’s yacht, named Zion."

    http://www.crownheights.info/index.php?itemid=44848
    "Aguiar's 31-foot, center console Jupiter boat, the T.T. Zion, a tender for the yacht Zion, landed on the sand east of East Las Olas Boulevard around 1:15 a.m. Wednesday, with its navigation lights on and engines still running, police said."

    Thank you Southsleuth. I am not a boater and I read it as a 31ft yacht capsized. I thought that was small for a yacht. I learned something new today! TY again.

    Southsleuth,
    If you were to look at currents etc... for that evening at Wunderground.com or another similar site, would it be possible to figure out if it is even remotely possibly that the body found in Biscayne Bay is his?

    I am sure LE would have identified him by now if it were him though.
    I'll go look for a thread on the body found and take the discussion of it there.
