Former MV Twin Capes leaving Lewes berth for preparation to become part of the Del-Jersey-Land artificial reef

The retired Cape May-Lewes ferry MV Twin Capes is scheduled for sinking onto the Del-Jersey-Land artificial reef tomorrow 26 miles out in the ocean from Indian River.  Built in 1974, the 320 foot long Twin Capes was declared surplus in 2010 the Delaware River and Bay Authority. Unable to sell the vessel to another ferry service, the DRBA decided to let it be used for the reef which is comprised of other vessels, like the Navy destroyer, USS Radford, and aims to boost marine life.
