I heard someone mention a reef made with an old vessel from Joe Patti's being sunk about 5 miles offshore, but I didn't get the whole story or the date of deployment. I'm sure someone here knows.

Talking about the Lulu? Says it's supposed to be sunk over the Memorial Day weekend.

Who would have thought to sink a dive reef in a depth that actually allows diver to view it and enjoy it? Oh, Alabama.

The resting spot for the LuLu reef was to depend on final surveys of ocean bottom by the state, with input and recommendations of the Reef Foundation. That location has now been finalized, and the geo-coordinates announced for the first time. Reef Foundation President Vince Lucido on April 24 confirmed that general location at +29 59' 50" / -87 33' 00" . . . about 17.5 miles south of Perdido Pass and Orange Beach. The Reef Foundation President is himself a diver and former dive shop owner.
