Former MV Twin Capes to be Sunk this Month to Del-Jersey-Land Artificial Reef


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

A retired Cape May-Lewes ferry ship will become a part of the Del-Jersey-Land artificial reef later this month.  The MV Twin Capes was built in 1974 and is one of the three original vessels that operated between Lewes and Cape May.  It was retired in October of 2013.  Last July the ferry was sold to DNREC for the reef project and taken to Norfolk where it was stripped of its equipment, electronics and engine components and prepared for sinking.  When the Twin Capes is sunk, it will become part of the existing Del-Jersey-Land artificial reef, which is a favorite for fishermen and divers.
