It happened in New Zealand in 2005.
Frigate HMNZS Wellington of the Royal New Zealand Navy had to be utilized.
I don't know why, but they found no better way to utilize it than just sink it near the shore.

My guess is that they used it to make an artificial reef... a quick google shows that it is being used as a dive wreck, so it is helping bring in tourism money.

Old ships are often used to make artificial reefs to allow local areas of reef to reform and repopulate, especially after a recent problem or disaster.

As a dive wreck, this may have more than tourist based usage, perhaps allowing the local search and rescue the chance to practice on a wreck in a more controlled environment.

It may well seem strange, but there's more to these things as you look in to them.

Google is your friend.

Yeah, the title is really dumb! Make sure of your facts dumbass! 26 of course they won't just sink a ship without considering the consequences... Like all the educated people before me said, it's for the good of the ocean! 04

fairmania, What about asbestos? Even though the HMNZS Wellington is not that old, a lot of old ships are massively polluted by asbestos, e.g aircraft carrier Clmenceau.
