|The Owl is unique in that it is a Steel hulled Yacht that was acquired for use as an Artificial Reef. It was deployed on September 10, 1986 in the Donaldson Permitted area in 60 feet of water. How it came to be called the Owl is not known.
The Owl;s entire hull is mostly buried with only 1-3 feet visible above the sandy bottom. This probably wasn’t a good choice for an Artificial Reef due to the thin Steeled hull.
There are also 3 Steel Rinker Barrels within 25 feet of this site. As a point of interest, there were many Black Sea Bass and large doormat sized Flounder on and around the structure.
