JONES BEACH DRY DOCK 

On 5/8/1990 a wood and steel dry dock was sunk on the Jones Beach artificial reef. The Dry Dock was 122 feet long 100 feet wide and 20 feet high. In addition to the dry dock was 250 cu yards of concrete rubble loaded onto the old hulks deck.

In 1995 Steve Jonassen and I did a side scan sonar survey of the wreck for the DEC. We found that the wreck was flatted out but all of her debris was still contained within a relatively small area.  26779.443718.5
