Last week, the Tamaroa was sunk off the coast of Cape May as an addition to the Del-Jersey-Land Inshore Reef.

The ship is known for its service during 1991’s “Perfect Storm,” which inspired the book and movie of the same name. The crew of the Tamaroa rescued crews of a stranded sailboat and a downed helicopter during the deadly storm off the coast of Massachusetts.

The former Coast Guard cutter joined a number of other retired ships that make up an artificial reef located roughly 26 nautical miles from Cape May. Watch the sinking below.
