Whats the wreck in the background - Ohio??
Prefect   [Apr 14, 2015 at 09:16 PM]
Yes Ohio. On September 19, 1946 the two halves of the Ohio were towed ten miles offshore and scuttled by gunfire from a destroyer.

I think I might regret this comment, Prefect, but surely a ship can only be scuttled by its own crew...?
Prefect   [Apr 15, 2015 at 06:11 PM]
You are quite correct, Ivan. I copied that from Wikipedia without thinking. I should have changed it to "sunk". Embarrassed
