There’s a Broken Trident in the waters off Drill Hall.

And those who sunk it hope it will become one of the island’s newest reefs with thriving corals.

Just over a week ago, a number of divers got together and sank a 12 feet by nine feet statue of the Broken Trident just off Drill Hall Beach in St Michael.

Yesterday and Saturday they started the process of creating a new reef by attaching rescued and broken off bits of stag horn corals to stainless steel nails on its frame.
