74' Lobster Boat "Maelstrom" from Atlantic Cape Fisheries, CM. was sunk on the Wildwood Reef at 11AM 4/6/2005. Location 38*57.412'N 74*41.346'W. 62' depth. She went down bow first with a slight list to starboard. Her bow was facing south.

It's no secret that our Artificial Reef Project has been a huge success ever since it's inception back in September 2002. The sinking of our artificial reef #6 is another prime example of the good that comes from our community.

I would like to thank Archie Faulkner aka, "High Wire" for administering this project for us. I'd also like to thank each and every one of you who participated. Without your support and your generous donations none of this would be possible!

THANK YOU!!

Now for Reef #7

How are these rig's sunken?
Welcome to the barn!
They sink them low tech as possible. Open all the seacocks and wait. They cut 1 square foot holes out of the sides about 2 ft above the waterline. When the water reaches the holes, its gone a minute later. Big ones like our first barge, the tug brings a high capacity pump to fill it faster. If its really big, they bring on the NJSP Bomb Squad and blow holes in the bottom.
