I wonder if this is somehow related to revival of runway expansion plan?

How are the water conditions around it? I have been eyeing it and wondering if there would be any juicy flat water spots in its lee...

Other than that, I have been wondering what it is there for as well.

I asked David Lewis of "Save the Bay" on Facebook:

Thanks, Kirk!

sunchips, there was flat water in lee of that thing, but the wind there is seriously messed up. There was nice swell around it, though.
