When I wasn't busy drinkin' with the Australian and Canadian sailors in Hawaii. I have been in the middle of the ocean participating in the Naval joint exercise "RIMPAC". My ship recently sunk the ex-USS New Orleans.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_New_Orleans_(LPH-11)

I believe he meant that they sunk a decommissioned ship.

I still think they should just cut em up and scrap em

Yup, apparently is like really expensive to upkeep on a decom ship. It's also really expensive to build target ships. The New Orleans is almost as big as a carrier, and there isn't a target ship I've ever seen that was that big. So making a coral reef out of an old ship is sometimes cheaper than scrap. I feel bad for the people who wanted to make it a museum, but it was really cool to blow it up too :lol:
