Our Mohawk sinking video is now posted below. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
At around 12:40pm, July 2nd 2012, the former Coast Guard Cutter Mohawk was sunk to the sea floor off the coast of Lee county Florida. See of the explosive sinking in the picture gallery below and look for video of the deployment to be posted soon.
The deployment was a great event with great weather, 100's of spectator boats, and an entertaining fireworks show. The Mohawk was sunk by the means of cutting charges; explosives that cut through the vessels hull allowing water to rush in. After the explosives were detonated the Mohawk sunk within minutes.
TISIRI's Joe Kistel and Ed Kalakauskis participated in the deployment events and investigated nearby artificial reef locations for TISIRI's Reefs Reveal mapping efforts. Stay tuned for the deployment day video and pictures from near by reef locations.
