    The contractor preparing the Radford plans to sink the vessel on Wednesday, Aug. 10, with a backup date of Thursday, Aug. 11. However, the sinking and the excursion are dependent on the weather and sea conditions at the site, and could be postponed due to circumstances beyond our control.

    I have a confirmed sitting of a “cut down navy destroyer” in Delaware Bay! Also called the DNREC for confirmation and was told ”anchors away”! You can track her progress here:
