The USNS General Hoyt S. Vandenberg

general_vandenber_usafsFrom WWII Troop Carrier / Missle Tracker to Man-made Reef ten miles off the coast of the FLA, The USNS General Hoyt S. Vandenberg was sunk yesterday. What baffles me is it took, $8.6M to put it on the bottom of the ocean. I would have done it for half that. But I wonder if I would have to provide my own eight-ton anchors to keep it in place. Thanks for the years of service, Vandenberg. May plant and fish-life keep you in good company for many years to come.
