The Broward County Artificial Reef Program later purchased the vessel and renamed it the ”Bud Krohn Reef” in memory of an avid fisherman and former captain of the jungle Queen tour boat in Fort Lauderdale. In early December 1989, the vessel was scuttled in 440 feet of water to serve as a deep‐water reef.
