Default Location of Baby AJ that was sunk last year as a reef

Have the coordinates of the baby AJs barge sunk last year as a reef ever been released. If I remember correctly they were going to be released this year at the start of the rodeo. Has anyone heard anything?

I am assuming this is out of Destin???? I have not heard of it. But I go out of Pensacola 99% of the time.

yes it is. They towed the baby AJ's barge out last year after the rodeo and sunk it as a public reef. I thought I remembered the story to be that at the start of this years rodeo they would release the numbers. maybe i remembered it wrong.

Looks like the reef is called the Kerry Ricks Memorial Reef.

I rode it out to it's final resting place. The release date for the numbers was to be the start of the Destin Rodeo, well, it's started. 3009.473 X 8624.417 Enjoy!

I am a member of the Emerald Coast Reef Association, the group that cleaned and sank this reef. Check us out: http://www.ecreef.org/
(If you join, tell them that Sea-r-cy reccomended you)

We deploy several reefs out of Destin each year, the current members get the numbers. Also, we usually deploy at least one load of private reefs for members.
