Additional note:

OCEAN FREEZE

The OCEAN FREEZE remains are highlighted with a host of humorous oddities. The wreck has more than its fair share of the ‘unusual’, even when it comes down to her name. This is one of those ‘which came first, the chicken or the egg scenarios’. Numerous reports indicate that she was the OCEAN FREEZE, and then became the SCOTT MASON-CHAITE. Other reports indicate the reverse. After checking numerous sources I feel that Miami-Dade County Artificial Reef Program Database is about as correct as it can get. That being said, SCOTT MASON-CHAITE was her latest name, and is what she is buried with.

[Webmaster's comment: Officially this ship never held any other names through her service life, than those rendered above]

Over and above the name issue, there are more unusual aspects you’ll find when visiting this wreck. For starters, the whole ship is upside down. This creates a rather unusual feel as you explore your way around her 297 foot length.

Her complete orientation is so removed from the norm as to be almost surreal. Her rudder is her highest point, her frame resting on the inverted superstructure of her stern. Since she’s elevated upside down from the ocean floor, divers have almost a 20 foot pass through which allows ample room to penetrate openings, peek through portholes, and explore around and beneath her.

The danger of her position is that one day her superstructure will eventually erode and break beneath her great weight. Anyone in the vicinity will be injured or killed, and of course it will certainly make future interior penetration impossible once this occurs.

However, even when she does collapse, which is inevitable, she’ll still be an interesting dive as she’s fast becoming a very successful artificial reef. Numerous fish call her hulking form home, and coral, oyster, and sponges are beginning to attach to her.

Not only are the marine life of great interest, this wreck still has some very interesting artifacts littered on, and around her, some from her past, and some from past divers leaving personal if not unusual mementos behind.
