This site began as a memorial to a Miami motorcycle patrolman when a 75-foot steel barge was sunk. Later, more debris was added. Near the barge lie 32 eight-foot concrete pipes and six, 90-foot concrete girders that were once part of Rickenbacker Causeway.
Some of the beams were shifted during Hurricane Andrew in 1992 although little damage was done. The depth of this area is 45 feet.
Several other wrecks are nearby including the Patricia and Miss Karleen. North of the area is the 57-foot African Queen.
