KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) - Project organizers say that on May 27th,
they hope to sink a retired missile-tracking ship that will be
converted into an artificial reef off Key West.
Key West City Manager Jim Scholl says the target date to sink
the General Hoyt S. Vandenberg could still change, though, because
of factors like unfavorable weather conditions.
The Vandenberg arrived in Key West on April 22nd. The ship is to
be scuttled about seven miles south of Key West in the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary.
