THE SHIP SINKERS
1 x 60 HD
They’re floating junkyards... moth-balled, decommissioned naval vessels, rotting away in dockyards around the world. Cutting them up for scrap is expensive, and leaving them to fall apart where they are is an ecological nightmare. Sounds like a job for...THE SHIPSINKERS. The Shipsinkers takes us inside the process of turning aging, rusting hulks into thriving artificial reefs – from initial cleaning and preparation to explosives rigging to the last minu te chaos as the clock counts down to zero. With exclusive archival materials from the early daysof ship sinkings and stunning new high-definition footage, this program takes us on a journey from New
Zealand, where a former frigate, the HMNZS Wellington, gets a new life underwater , to the British Columbia coast and the Florida Keys .
