AMERICAN CUSTOM YACHTS & BAUSCH AMERICAN TOWERS purchased naming rights to two of four steel towers scheduled to become Martin County's newest artificial reef. This new reef is composed of four 33-foot-tall steel tow­ers donated by the U.S. Navy and modified for reef deployment at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute at Florida Atlantic University in Fort Pierce. The ACY and BAT Towers were dropped in 200 feet of water south of Wickstrom Reef and parallel to Eight Mile Reef on June 27. Each tower features its sponsor's name proudly displayed on a steel plate. The other towers were sponsored by Dr. Robert Baratta and Debbie Schmidt.
