It is not unusual for deadheads to "snag" the bottom. Did you report the deadhead via VHF?

No, I didn't (and I should have) . I usually do when they are in an area where there's traffic or on the move. Wasn't sure what the procedure is for one that's not moving and not in a well traveled lane. Next time I will - Thanks for the reminder.

The "proper" VHF procedure is to issue a short securite message on 16 with the complete message on 06. I usually contact Coast Guard radio on their working channel to see if it has been reported. They then issue a securite message.
