A few weeks ago the Sun Herld ran a story about a very large Marlin and some tuna that were caught off LA. They mentioned a place called the Devil's Tower (I also believe that they said it was near the Cognac Rig). Can anyone give me the GPS coordinates for the Devil's Tower and explain the meaning?

Devils Tower is the Floater that is ~150 miles south of Mobile, AL. It is in Mississippi Canyon Block 773. It is a Spar platform in 5600 feet of water. The platform is was built to process oil from the Devil's Tower field, hence the name. Don't have GPS coordinates for it.
