  • This film shows the construction of an artificial reef with the help of Goodyear and involved citizens of Marathon. It shows how tires are punched, squeezed and loaded with concrete. Navy LSM and private vessels are loaded with tires. All of them converge and begin dumping. There is underwater photography of tires hitting the bottom and sea life beginning to inhabit the tires. The film shows the Goodyear blimp Mayflower. Produced by Sonny Florida Productions.
