Dive Notes:

Team drops in on the MG-111 barge wreck and swims north to the columns of Warrior Reef. Our benchmarks from 2005 are gone. Experience small amount of surge on the bottom. Map team nails benchmarks #3 and #4 to the concrete bases. Map team also gets GPS locations for these benchmarks as well as the NW and SW corners of the debris field of columns. Map team saw 2 goliath grouper near the MG-111 wreck and a large school of legal size snook swimming among the columns. Approximately 55% of the columns remain upright with 45% laid over in the sand.
