Divesite:

Named after marine artist Guy Harvey who helped fund and promote this artificial reef project.

The Pompano Beach Fishing Rodeo appropriated the vessel for use as an artificial reef and towed the crippled freighter back to Fort Lauderdale. Guy Harvey laid his artistic touch to the gutted vessel, painting billfish and sharks on its wheelhouse and hull. She now rests upright and intact, and encrusting organisms have long since covered over Harvey’s paintings.

May Storms had left a mark on the wreck and deterioration is becoming more noticeable.
