Navy Diving Crew Trying To Free Training Ship

Friday, April 21, 2006
A Navy dive team in Alabama is trying to rescue a retired Coast Guard ship that once served as the training ship for Maine Maritime Academy. The State of Maine and a former Navy ship USS Shadwell collided during a 12-ft. storm surge during Hurricane Katrina. The Shadwell was deposited on dry ground while the State of Maine was stuck in shallow water. A 13-man Navy diving crew is in Mobile to reposition the ships before a dredging crew can dig the ships out. The current State of Maine is a former Navy oceanographic research vessel. It was built in 1990 and turned over to Maine Maritime Academy in 1997. It serves as a teaching platform and has the capacity to carry 302 people. Source: AP
