Re: US Navy ship strikes reef because of incorrect charts
once stripped.. I am not sure that the guardian has a salvage worth. She is wood and glassfibre.. which means that once stripped, she should come off of the reef easier than a metal ship
If that's true it really would be very
irresponsible to cut her up in situ.
Hopefully they'll do something like you suggest - and sooner rather than later - but I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens...
