Does the raft still exist at Dane Street Beach?

When I was a little boy, my grandmother used to take me down to the Dane Street Beach where she'd sit and watch as I swam out to the raft which was anchored a short distance offshore. It was constructed of 55 gallon drums and lumber: maybe 12' X 12' in overall size, and had a small diving board. I'm talking about back in the mid 1960s. I assume the City of Beverly kept it up.

I'm certain the beach is still there but is the raft? And if it does, can anybody point me towards a downloadable picture of it? I will be very appreciative of anybody who can help me out here.
