Can anyone tell me more about this new dive/snorkel site on the west side of Peter? I understand the organizers are also paying tribute to our good friend Branson Read that was killed this spring in that horrible dingy accident.

I hope the 4 pics I attempted to post show up?!

They're sinking her in 60-ft of water off of Key Cay and it's being broadcast live on Facebook right now.

We had many good times on that boat. I think that ending is the best one could ask for, for that boat.

Where is the Key Cay it was sunk off? Looks like round rock in the distance. Is it the small island off Key point on the backside of Peter?

We call it Key Bay...never heard it called Key Cay before. Right before White Bay on Peter Island.

Key Cay is the little island off the point.

The boat looked in better shape when they sunk it than it did when we saw in on the shore last July. I couldn't imagine that wreck even being towable to its final resting place.
