|The Corner Barge was so named because its position from the other two barges puts it in a “Corner” of the Ernst Permitted Area. It sits upright in 70 feet of water.
This site was heavily dived as a spearfishing site by some members of the F.O.S. Dive Team from 1988 thru 1991 and they remember it as being intact and in good condition during that time. Now it is heavily broken up and collapsed. There is heavy scouring of sand under the length of the South side of the barge and a sand berm on the North side. The East end of the structure is more intact than the West probably because it is still structurally supported by the sea floor.
