Good eye, Dan. That's the cinder block. Here's the full inventory of what they hauled up:
" . . . a small Fortress
anchor, a very, very, very large Navy
type anchor not visible in this photo, a cinder block, two sizes of polypro line, four sizes of dacron line, two sizes of chain, a large U-shaped steel
bar, plus a lot of barnacles

Here's a Maptech
image of the area, but unfortunately it doesn't show water depths. It's clear from the steep terrain of the island leading down to the water, though, that it drops off quickly. Remember, Dag, this is the Pacific, not the Bahamas
PS: Sorry for the absence of the Maptech
image. In the words of Old Lodgeskins in Little Big Man,
