Sink the Ark Royal ?

There have been a book, two movies and one pop song entitled, “Sink the Bismark.”    That is what came to mind when I heard that the Torbay Council’s Harbour Committee is recommending that they sink the Ark Royal.   The aircraft carrier, the ex-flagship of the Royal Navy, has been for sale since April.  Rather than have her sold to a scrap yard, the Torbay council is recommending that the ship be sunk as an artificial reef and recreational dive site.  Wreck the World, a group behind the proposal, believes that they are  in competition with up to twenty other bidders.
