Hi Terence,
I loaded up in our simulator the high res data for the deep part of Ship Rock and in effect the drop is NOT vertical as the 3D image I posted made me believe.
But, I can still see a substantial drop from ~270ft to ~320ft made up in leap and bounces with several rock formations outlining the deep edge of the cone. This edge has an arc of ~30 degrees and is ~200m long

An example of coordinates:
33 27 55.2N, 118 29 30.74W --> 273ft
then go north to
33 27 55.79N, 118 29 30.66W and you will be in ~320ft

Again, this edge is definetely not made up of sand as I can see lot of boulders lying around
