the scuttling of hms lexington
« on: June 23, 2011, 18:08:09 »

this short video is me scuttling the hull of my aircraft carrier hms lexington, in my service for 2 years. she will now rest on the bottom of stanly park boating lake for eternity. i felt it was a more honourable end to a greAt ship than scrapping her. what do you think?

I want to ask, why did it need to sink?
And if you didn't went to sink it, why should it have been scrapped?
Looked like a good hull to me.  :-\
