Not sad in my eyes. Far better than being scrapped. Continues to provide habitat for 50 plus years.

Definitely kinda sad in a way I think but like AUBV said, I'd much rather see this then have it scrapped. Nothing breaks my heart more then vintage cars being shredded and turned into Hyundais and prius's

I know where she rests. I just wish they removed the riggings to reduce the chance getting a hook snagged.

Every time when you see a video of a ship sinking it amazes me how quickly things go after a certain point. After the deck gets flooded it was a matter of a few seconds before she went under.
