Did a quick Google search. You may also want to email John Chatterton, I think he did a underwater detectives episode on this program and may be able to provide more specific info John Chatterton (http://johnchatterton.com/contact.php)

Some of that stuff sounds a bit scary, it's amazing what happens.

Thanks again! Sent John an email, we'll see if he replies. Yeah this sure is an interesting ship. After doing some more research, i found it's not diveable-it's got 8000 tons of chemical
warefare stuff on board. And it's in 220 fathoms. And it's 120 miles
out.. Oh well

Isn't amazing what we do to our oceans. Didn't anybody see the origional Godzilla movies?

As far as I know, that is based on an event that happened in Japan. It could happen here, but I doubt it. Only Japan seems to be that lucky, probably something to do with the nukes that hit it a while back...

Did you see the mechanical Godzilla?

WMD be it nuke or chemical are probably not good. Don't you remember the Smog monster. I saw all the real bad Godzilla movies on the big screen. Guess I had a thing for bad movies.
