    Thanks for the info Eeel. I have done at least a dozen or more dives off my boat on the Copenhagen since your post.

    Very recently I have noticed what appears to be private marker buoys in the vicinity of the Jay Scutti and maybe the Edmister. Does anybody know anything about these? I would love to dive them, but without mooring balls, it makes it impractical.

    Might be Anglin's Ledge public buoys. All the public mooring buoys are here. Mooring Buoy Program

    Here is a really thorough list of dive sites in our area:
    Broward County GPS Coordinates Reefs Shipwrecks - Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, Hillsboro Inlet
    Unfortunately, as best as I can tell from my own personal experience and Googling, the Copenhagen is the only wreck with mooring buoys near us. There are some great ones in the Keys. I am sure I have done at least 100 dives on the Spiegel Grove alone. Even some of the wrecks in The Bahamas have buoys. I wish they would add them to the Jay Scutti, Jim Attria and others around here.
