It was a busy day at the wreck of the Benwood.

There were several dive boats tied to the mooring balls.As I approached the wreck, I saw all manner of scuba divers — from those decked out in rebreathers and other technical gear to others who appeared to be finishing up dives to get their open water dive certification.The shape of what remains of the ship appeared. I thought of Rodney Dangerfield who “don’t get no respect.”A Dangerfield one-liner came into my head: “Once when I was lost I saw a policeman and asked him to help me find my parents. I said to him, ‘Do you think we’ll ever find them?’ He said, ‘I don’t know kid. There are so many places they can hide.”Well, the Benwood didn’t hide too well. The story goes that she was dynamited as a navigational hazard and was used by the U.S. Army for aerial target practice after World War II.But now, she has respect and is one of the more popular shipwreck dives in the Keys.
