RI is all in a tizzy over this object found in the waters off SoCo

Looks like an anchor for equipment

WESTERLY Lodged underwater about 10 feet off the shoreline at low tide at East Beach is a mysterious circular metal object with stainless steel legs that are capped with concrete. It is prompting both intrigue as to its provenance and concern because it presents a hazard to swimmers and body surfers.

Not mine. Looks like a mount for an adcp, but I asked all the usual suspects a few weeks ago when it was first found.

First thing i thought was the old Charlestown Air Station at Ninigrit. Maybe something that crashed years ago in the WWII era. But not sure if they had stainless steel back then?

It is clearly a fully articulated transit hatch cover from a 4th generation Alpha Centurion space warp pod.
