Reef History:

This offshore Jacksonville reef was created in 1983 with concrete culvert material and metal fuel tanks (with their ends cut off). At a future date a metal barge was deployed at the reef site. If you look at the pictures and video above you will see evidence of the fuel tanks but they have eroded over the years in the harsh marine elements. See the pictures of the 1983 deployment below.
