Originally known as the CB Barge, this 200′ vessel was damaged by a storm while on a job in Waianae (possible working on the sewer outfall extension). It was kept afloat with a large air bladder and towed into Honolulu Harbor. Following an inspection, it was deemed too costly to be repaired and donated to DAR. Scuttled in 1985, it rests in 95’ of water on a broad flat sand plain adjacent to a flat rubble plain. The wreck is mostly intact with numerous opportunities to penetrate.
Divers regularly encounter Whitetip Reef Sharks, Giant Trevally, Yellowmargin Moray, Pyramid Butterflyfish, Longfin Bannerfish, Hawaiian Dascyllus, Indigo Dartfish, Wire Corals, and large, shrub-like Black Corals.
