Bill,
That photo must have been taken either a long time ago, or taken at a very low tide; the wreck is completely submerged. The buoy in the video marks it, as it is quite a navigation hazard.

That photo was taken in 2008. No buoy was necessary to mark the wreck then. Or, maybe it's a different wreck, although I don't know of another that is a hazard marked by a buoy. I'll swing in and take a look. It's about time for the yellowtail to move in on the high spots in that area.

That was absolutely fantastic!
I must go there and be one with the fishes.
