Ocean City Artificial Reef

New Jersey Reefs

4.5 Nautical Miles off Ocean City

This reef is composed largely of Army tanks and tire units, with some rock and rubble, and three old boat molds ( not shown. ) Also not shown on the chart is the SS Minnow, a small 30' commercial fishing vessel. The ferro-cement hull has probably broken up and sunk into the sand, as recent efforts to locate it have not been successful.

Libra reef
The red tug was used as a work platform to sink the barge, then it was sunk itself as a reef on the Atlantic City reef.

The dredge sank in a storm while dredging a channel in Lynnhaven Beach, Va. Salvaged but never returned to service. The dredge was designed and built to be disassembled, allowing it to be trucked to various locations. Height restrictions at the reef site required the A-frame to be cut down. However, the top portion was welded to the deck, to provide more structure.
