USS Oriskany
Captain Joe Patti was known in Pensacola for his fishing fleet and seafood market. Still one of the most popular tourist attractions, Joe Patti Seafood still attracts people from all over the world for fresh seafood. The barge was sunk by grandson Frank Patti and became a community memorial project with the addition of memorial plaques for many of the prominent businesses and people from the Pensacola area. Stainless steel cutouts of the Blue Angles, Pensacola Beach Sign and water tower, Flora Bama Lounge and plenty of other interesting cutouts of fish and local marine animals. Of course the most prominent feature is the diving helmet for Viking Diving located at the center of the barge along the side behind the Blue Angels.
