The dream sinking a Cold War era submarine to become an artificial reef of Florida’s coast is coming closer to a reality. The Artificial Reefs International of Key West hope to pull the deteriorating Clagamore sub out of the water and put it on a barge within a few months.
The plan to sink the sub has dragged out for more than a year and has also faced delays from costs and complications. It will cost the artificial reef aficionados upwards of $4 million to finalize the project.
"We want to get this done before the hurricane season," said Joe Weatherby, senior project manager for Artificial Reefs International of Key West, told The Post and Courier.
While the process has certainly been trying, the end result could be fantastic for underwater photographers. The plan is to make the submarine an underwater museum and main dive attraction in the region.
