Navigational Hazard near the Berry Islands

A large excavator is now resting in approximately 3 meters of water, one and half miles south of the western tip of Little Stirrup Cay, northern Berry Islands. The position of the excavator is 25° 47.552′ N/77° 57.378′ W. It is believed to have fallen off a barge last summer and remains submerged near the surface, near the shoal extending south-southwest from Little Stirrup Cay. Google Earth’s current photo, taken on 8/15/19, shows a tug and two barges anchored next to the submerged object at that location. Apparently salvage attempts were unsuccessful.

Thanks to  Ann and Mike on Beans for reporting the hazard.
