Depth is a challenge, of course. Having the wreck come to less than 50 feet of the surface poses a question of navigation hazard. If the wreck has any relief, add that to 50 feet. For a war ship serving as both a reef and a recreational dive attraction, it makes sense to think of having significant amount of features in the 50-100 foot range. That suggests a bottom depth in the 100-130 range for anything smaller than a cruiser.

That doesn't mean deepr wrecks aren't great reefs. They are. Every wreck I've seen in California in the 250-300 range has masses of fish life. Big, too.
