JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - A $100,000 artificial reef will be sunk off the coast of Jupiter as a memorial to a man who died while snorkeling there.

The Andrew “Red” Harris Foundation is set to deploy the reef on August 19 to honor the man who struck and killed by a boat while snorkeling in June 2014.

The Palm Beach Post (https://pbpo.st/1WeUtTo ) reports the reef will be located three and a half miles off Jupiter Inlet in 88-foot deep water.

Scott Harris is president of the foundation created to honor his son’s memory.

The reef was created by Chris O’Hare. It is made of 40 “reef cells” modeled after Bahamian coral heads. The cells are composed of Portland and aluminate cement and vary in height from 5 to 8 feet..
