Published numbers are close to the "island". Read 85ish and you are on it. Bow is due south ( stay on 148') til it drops to 212'. Stern is north, same thing, drops 148 - 212. Mind your course, so you don't drop off the sides. Also, mark up a down current side any day you go, the Snappers, and AJ's will school up just below deck level, on the down current side, usually a little way away from the island. Great reef, especially if you get away from the island.
