How it Sunk:It is an interesting dive for a barge. It is located close to shore and often in the lee of the point. It makes good dive when the weather is from the west or northwest and too bad to dive elsewhere. The depth is 115' max. It lies about 3/4 overturned, but there is a lot of interesting machinery to see.
