Why it pounds. - Free dove here last Nov (04) when we lost the prop on our boat. We were only 200 yards off the beach yet the propeller was located about 50 feet beneath us. Had to swim down and pick it off the bottom along with the nut that held it on. Pretty interesting. Its no wonder this place breaks like it does. Deep water energy slamming into shallow sand bars. I'll go back.
