Rodeo 25


Nore was laid down in Holland in 1956 and served as a local freighter until 1969 when she was sold and renamed Booker Trojan. She was sold several times during her career, and ended up in the US named Windvard Trader in 1986. She did service on the Miami River for a short time, but was in the late 1980's laid up. Early in 1990's it was decided that she should be scuttled as part of the artificial reef program. She was to scuttled under the 25th anniversary for "Pompona Beach Fishing Rodeo" and was renamed Rodeo 25 just prior to the sinking. She disappeared in the deep 12. May 1990 outside Pompona Beach. The wreck rest today on her keel as a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of 33 to 40 meter approximately half a nautical mile outside Pompano Beach.
