Divesite:

On February 1, 1985, the freighter Sir Scott was sent to the bottom following the detonation of several hundred pounds of dynamite. Due to a frozen rudder that hindered its towing, the Sir Scott was actually scuttled five miles north of its intended destination. The Sir Scott now rests upright and intact in approximately 220 feet of water south of Fowey Rocks, three miles east of the Ragged Keys.
