    “Radford: The Atlantic Ocean’s largest artificial Reef” (a work in progress)

    Once built as an instrument of war, the Ex USS Arthur W. Radford, a former Navy destroyer, has begun a second life as the largest artificial reef in the Atlantic Ocean.

    Readying the 563ft long Radford for its final mission took several years. It was sunk to 140ft. at the Del-Jersey-Land Inshore Reef site, located 26 miles southeast of Delaware’s Indian River Inlet, on August 10, 2011. A few months later, its immense structure was found broken in three sections following a very active hurricane season.

    Stripped and amply diverized, the Radford reef offers great training opportunities for the skilled, technical wreckdiver."
