USS Mohawk becomes artificial reef

FORT MYERS BEACH, FL -
The World War II ship the USS Mohawk was scuttled 28 miles off the coast of Sanibel Island early Monday afternoon. It is now an artificial reef for divers and anglers and is a veterans memorial.

The county’s Marine Services Program and Reefmakers LLC, a Key West company that specializes in sinking ships as artificial reefs, was scheduled to scuttle the 165-foot World War II Coast Guard cutter at 11 a.m., but it was delayed by nearly two hours. . . click here for more.
