Attention Scuba Divers: The World’s Largest Man-made Reef
March 3, 2006By: Mary Winston Nicklin
A ship is to sunk-- intentionally-- off the coast of Pensacola, Florida. As CNN reports:
If all goes according to plan, explosives will be placed throughout the largely hollowed-out shell of the USS Oriskany in May and it will plummet 210 feet to the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico.
The ship that starred in films like "The Bridges of Toko Ri" and "The Men of the Fighting Lady," will play a new role as bait to lure serious divers and sport fishermen worldwide and help boost tourism to the hurricane-ravished local economy.
