Default Joseph L Watts reef

Went out for the mighty ARS this weekend in the yak and hit this particular reef. When I got above the reef I noticed what looked like a mast coming up from the bottom running diagonally, pointing east. Any insight on this? Was eerie and I couldn't see if the mast connected to anything and def didn't see any rigging lines.
