This map below from pnwscuba.com seems to be the one everyone refers to now.
I think, however, there are now two white buoy's with red stripes. Is that right?

Has anything else changed?

(I think the rope path from the white buoy may now go not only toward the non-intact Honey Bear but also the other way: to the other white buoy and perhaps to No Dive Zone boundary rope. Right?)

The boundary line has shifted somewhat to the left; that was part of the reworking that was done a couple of years ago when the boundary line was replaced. In addition, a cross-cove line at about 45 - 50 feet was put in, that goes from the boundary line to the original can buoy.

LCF, Thanks!

I'd love to see a sonar image. (And, of course, someday, when someone creates an updated map, that will be much appreciated.)

The boundary line changed when the dock for the water taxi was reconfigured. The dock used to be "L" shaped, and the water taxi would pull in and back out parallel to shore. When they redid it a few years back they made it "T" shaped, so that the water taxi now pulls in and backs out perpendicular to shore. This meant the taxi needed less space, and the divers gained more of the area they'd given up for the taxi back in 2002.
