Sounded not unlike a CB channel, no callsigns and not fishermen as when signing off the one guys said he had to go wake the kids for school so I assume land based from a home.

Not too far from 60 meters, within the 5 MHz fixed mobile band, and slightly below the 60 meter broadcasting band. 

If not fishermen, I'd guess freebanders using their own version of "60 meters" :D

I wonder if "wake the kids for school" is the new "dropping the kids off at the pool".

Given your location it sounds like classic fishermen out in the Atlantic somewhere...
