  1. The repeated displays of ignorance in this comment section are virtuosic, so many of them patting themselves on their backs for their cleverness as they show off their utter cluelessness as to the basic facts of how and why a ship can form a valuable coral reef.

  2. love seeing these old things being ised for dive sites, scary how fast that thing went down. Can you imagine if it was sinking accidentally and people had to get from the bottom of the ship and get out in that kind of time

  3. Ya especially since it landed in a part of the ocean where fish cant't survive and now that they sunk it aquatic life now has a new place to live.

  4. yeah, cause it's such a bad idea to want to make a part of the ocean which is impossible for fish to survive, habitable, especially when it works all the time, then it's an even worse idea.

  5. Yeah! Because then it becomes a reef and increases the population of many species that live in the ocean by giving them a home in a place that was once impossible for them to live.

  6. WHO CARES ABOUT ARTIFICAL REEFS! JUST PUT BACK INTO SERVICE WITH SIME REPAIRS AND UPGRADES INSTEAD OF SINKING IT!!!!

  7. wow I put a tiny ass plastic bottle one the ground and get a ticket, they put a giant ass piece of trash in the ocean and get applauded.

  8. I think that was a German built Coaster, from the Shipyard J.J. Sietas and was built between the years 1962-1966.

  9. OMG, I can't watch this WITHOUT IT LOADING, I watch the first 5 seconds of it, AND STOP, it has to LOAD, I honestly wish YouTube had more control over that so that we could simply watch a video, Is it really to much to ask to watch a simple video?
