Welcome back to the our channel for a special feature on some of the unique methods the US employs to salvage vessels, their crew, and cargo. In addition to a snapshot of these ships' next life as reefs. Incredible operation, amazing engineering. I wonder if the two year salvage operation paid a profit that's really expensive equipment per hour not to mention paying salaries for expertise, permits. Etc.. Envious of people who are visionaries and can sell an operation like this to investors. Otherwise this would have been navigation danger for at least a 100 years. Having engineered ocean tugs on gulf, east coast and north, Central America, I never ceased to be amazed at the stupid things people manage to do with vessels. Picked up a drunk in a zodiac after separating from a sailboat off Yucatán. Didn’t even know he was alone. Never found the sailboat so we just took him along. Good cook though. Bizarre stuff every day. I know that in the USA everything seems bigger and better, but now you are quite wrong. In a small country, the Netherlands, which has 17 million inhabitants, the famous Smit salvage has been established for decades and has a leading role and has established a huge name worldwide.
