I think we need everybody's help. I was simply making the point that the USN needs to get rid of 400 ships and the methods of disposal need to include the option of reefing since this will make more ships available and will probably allow funding for the preparation (removal of toxics).
From the website I referenced above:(http://www.scubadiving.com/feature/shipstoreefs)
"... To make history, you've got to do something. Although U.S. Congress has mandated that the aging ships be disposed of, the method of doing so is still being decided. If you wish to help inaugurate a new era of diving in North America, if you wish to help write an exciting chapter in the history of sport diving, you've got to make your voice and your opinion heard. Here's how:
It is imperative that a reefing option be added to House Resolutions 4205 and 4576, and to Senate Bill 2487, which will decide the fate of these ships. To ensure the option is added, you must tell your Congressional representatives that you want it done."
