Looking at checking out some different points this weekend and taking advantage of the flat water (hopefully Sunday) Looking at AR 300, the web shows these numbers :
34° 18.517' / 076° 24.133' to​
34° 18.543' / 076° 24.125'
and two more sets for some concrete near the wreck.

Yet the GPS sheet I downloaded some time ago shows 34 18.310N 76 24.080W I got this list of numbers from someone on here last year. Anyone know which one is right? I realize I could look at both as they aren't that far apart, but would rather avoid the extra travel if I could.

I have found that when you get to the general area of a reef or wreck zoom in on your sonar and circle the area and you will find the structure.

NC Marine Fisheries lists the location as 34.30.945, 76.40.883. I can tell you it's about 22 miles from the Beaufort sea buoy and about 1/4 mile north of the R-14 buoy in about 90' of water. Lots of stuff there.

You will get several sets of numbers off of a reef. That is because they make multiple trips out to drop concrete, rubble or drop a boat. After each drop a new number is established. They spread it out so all isn't in one big heap on the bottom but spread out over an area.

Where you been? About time for the Neuse to kick off.

That's the magic link! It shows the location of all the reef balls, airplanes, concrete rubble, and ships found at each reef. Invaluable.

Thats the link I got the original numbers from... Thanks fellas. Hoping to have a good day of diving on that rig. I admit I am doing a bit of cyber scouting in the way of looking for some new stuff to dive on. Live bottom, ledges, wrecks that are a bit further out.

Maybe put some lion fish in the bag. They are super tasty...
