While I agree with Bill that the angle of the wreck makes it appear more "realistic", the problem is that the Yukon is being touted as a reacreational dive. As it was planned with all of its exits, it was pretty safe even for non OE divers. As it is now, it can be dangerous, since half of the planned exits are blocked.
I should add here, that I haven't dove the wreck yet, but I dove the Saskatchewan, another McKenzie Class ship in BC.
As long as the Yukon is being made accessible to divers of any level, I think that if the Navy is willing to right her, we should be happy to let them do so.
