If you are asking what I think you are asking the only thing "private" on a reef you get permited and deployed is the numbers. If someone happens to find your "private" reef then that is just a chance you take. You can't tell the person that found it to leave cause it is yours, can't put up a no trespassing sign and so forth. Even though you paid to build it or purcahse it and have it permitted and deployed once it hits the Gluf floor it is technically fair game.
