The Spiegel Grove was supposed to be sunk upright, creating the largest and most accessible artificial reef ever. Cool!

Unfortunately, the ship had other ideas and now appears to be impersonating a giant turtle. One of the nation's top marine salvage outfits has been called to the rescue. Looks like a potential Discovery Channel show in the making. (Check out the pictures on the Spiegel Grove site, they're pretty cool.)

Can it really be that difficult to correctly sink a ship?

Where's the application for bid proposal.

And I wonder, did THEY give any advice *cough*cough* to the first attempters? Seems like a bundle of dough could end up going to this salvage outfit due to this 'mis-calculation' *wink*wink*.

Subtle, BentPenguin, subtle.
