Fishing buoy from the Kelly Ann- a Hawaiian Long-liner

Last week, on Islay we had the fortune of finding an American fishing buoy at Sanaig.
This is not unusual as we get many fishing buoys from over the Atlantic- usually from Connecticut, but they normally don't have any identification clues. What made this buoy different was that it had a name and ID number of the boat it came from. 
The Kelly Ann 929284

The Kelly Ann (92984)was built in 1988 built by Kelly Ann Corp and is a 78ft tuna long liner- licensed from Hawaii.
