An interesting cost comparison would be Oriskany. She was sunk as a reef in Florida. I wonder what it cost to prepare her for sinking? Surely it was more than $25M. (granted that likely required more cleanup and remediation than will Forrestal).
Again, what is different about military ships that makes these issues different from other ships? For one thing, there is apparently a regulation that prohibits scrapping of government ships outside of the US.
