Who Pulled the Plug?
No good deed goes unpunished. Destined to go down in the history books as the largest artificial reef, the 510-foot Spiegel Grove decided to sink a bit early. The ship turned turtle (see sequence below) before she could be set in place, resulting in quite the quagmire. We’re happy to report the conservation-minded volunteers eventually corrected the ship’s position.
