Dive in Key Largo

Coast Guard Cutter - Bibb.

Sunk 27-Nov-1987, @ 1 mile south of Molasses light tower and about 1/4 mile from the Duane. She rests on her right side in 145 feet of water. There are boat tie-off’s on the bow, and the stern. The current can sometimes be treacherous (very very strong), requiring the dives to go up and down the tie off rope’s. While decompressing at 15-20’, it is not uncommon to hold onto the rope and have your bodies sideways from the current. It can sometimes force off your mask!
