    I just read an article in the latest Dive Training magazine, that they will be sinking a Canadian 372 ft submarine destroyer in the St. Lawrence river. There are many, many wrecks in the St. Lawrence, but they are deteriorating pretty fast because they are visited so often by divers. So, in an effort to preserve history, they're sinking this ship. Pretty awesome! The St. Lawrence gets the credit it deserves in the magazine as being described as "the best fresh water diving in the world".

    Very cool :)
    It sounds very much like the 366ft Yukon we have here in SD, it's pretty cool to dive her even if, or maybe because, she isn't upright on the bottom .. they say she's visited by over 10,000 divers each year ... San Diego Oceans Foundation

    Have fun diving her :D
