Need a little help locating a wreck

Ive recently came across a wreck of a tug that went down west and a little north of the Suwannee River. It's standing on it's stern providing quite a bit of relief. It's in aprx 85 fsw.
If you know of and don't mind sharing the numbers, I'd be happy to trade some secret spots for it.

Thanks

Up in that area I can't imagine how far offshore that must be.

Is this tug a recent sinking? I have several barges in that area but not the tug that was towing them.

Re: Need a little help locating a wreck

The way it was told to me is that in a bad storm in 2008, this tug went down. It took the lives of several crew. The captain faced charges but was exonerated after board reviewed the case. What baffles me is the fact that it is still sitting upright on her stern after all of the storms that we've had. I have some tug numbers but none of them matched. That's why I was reaching out to the members for some help with its location, if anyone would share. I did have one member give me several numbers and at least one of them is in the correct depth. I thank him for that help. If anyone else has been there, I'd be interested in what you know about it. Thanks to all again.
