================================================== =======
OCEAN FREEZE
Ocean Freeze remains are highlighted with a host of humorous oddities
The Ocean Freeze has more than her fair share of the ‘unusual’, even when
it comes down to her name.
This is one of those ‘which came first, the chicken or the egg scenarios’.
Numerous reports indicate that she was the Ocean Freeze, and then
became the Scott Mason Chaite. Other reports indicate the reverse. After
checking numerous sources I feel that Miami-Dade County Artificial Reef
Program Database is about as correct as it can get. That being said, Scott
Mason Chaite was her latest name, and is what she is buried with.

Over and above the name issue, there are more unusual aspects you’ll find
when visiting this wreck. For starters, the whole ship is upside down. This
creates a rather unusual feel as you explore your way around her 297 foot length.

Her complete orientation is so removed from the norm as to be almost
surreal. Her rudder is her highest point, her frame resting on the inverted
superstructure of her stern. Since she’s elevated upside down from the
ocean floor, divers have almost a 20 foot pass through which allows ample
room to penetrate openings, peek through portholes, and explore around
and beneath her.

The danger of her position is that one day her superstructure will
eventually erode and break beneath her great weight. Anyone in the vicinity
will be injured or killed, and of course it will certainly make future interior
penetration impossible once this occurs.

However, even when she does collapse, which is inevitable, she’ll still be
an interesting dive as she’s fast becoming a very successful artificial reef.
Numerous fish call her hulking form home, and coral, oyster, and sponges
are beginning to attach to her.

Not only are the marine life of great interest, this wreck still has some very
interesting artifacts littered on, and around her, some from her past, and
some from past divers leaving personal if not unusual mementos behind.
