Around 2011 the Coast Guard station at IRI was reshaped. Here's a historical photo of the project in progress
The corner of the quad area was sort of chamfered off. Out of curiosity, I looked around the web trying to find out why this was done, but found nothing. Do you remember why? If you look at the depth measurements taken in 1999 you can see an 80' deep hole right next to the station which is even deeper (90') in 2004:
Were they worried that scouring might undermine the bulkhead?
In that first picture on the top left corner you can see a beach. I use to do real well fishing from that beach for flounder using small live spot for bait. Is that beach still there? and can you still fish there from shore?
