Description:    The Jay Scutti is 95' long and sits upright with the bow pointing north. The Scutti is one of 4 wrecks in a line. The Pride is to the south and the Tracey and Merci Jesus are to the north. She is encrusted with invertebrates, sponges, hydroids and tunicates making this a favorite wreck for herbivorous fish like parrots.
 
History:   The 95 foot Aruba harbor tugboat was built in 1961 in the Netherlands. Her original name was Arikok after the first settlers of Aruba. The Arikok was caught while on a marijuana smuggling mission and confiscated. She was later purchased at auction by a local businessman and renamed Jay Scutti, in memory of his son. The wreck was sunk as an artificial reef on September 19, 1986.
