She is the ship that would not sink........here we are several years later and last week August 17th 2008 there were reports of tarballs washing up on the Oregon Shore line from her Aft end section that is still stuck in the sand offshore.
What they did to this ship was beyond belief!
She ran aground, they refloated her but she started to leak a wee bit of oil.They decided to burn the oil out of here then tow her out to sea and scuttle her.They set fire to her with explosive charges and she burned.........she broke her back and split in two.They towed her forward section out several miles and the navy had target practice.they blasted her for over two hours and she would not sink. Finally they sent a torpedo at her and she slipped under.
The aft end was towed out and the lines broke..she washed up in shallow waters later that week.
She is like most people who come to Oregon....it's so beautiful here who would want to leave? :-D You can still see her remains off the coast, but hopefully not for long.
