Deep shipwreck exploration off Miami - round 2

The weather finally allowed us to check out another multibeam sonar target off Miami last week, which turned out to be an old wooden-hulled vessel resting in 240 feet of water. The upper decks appear to have been swept off and rest approximately 300 feet away from the main hull. As the vessel is missing its running gear, odds are this was an intentional scuttling. But given the deterioration of the wreck, she has been down a good while.
Here is some footage of the wreck...I'd be interested in any thoughts as to what the objects off the stern may be. They are 3-4' in diameter and my first guess was mixing gear of some sort?

Be sure to watch in HD and enjoy!
Cheers,
