Lake Mead in Nevada is running out of water and in the process is giving up some of its sunken treasures.  The latest is a WW2 Higgins boat that at one time was used for survey work and then, inexplicably, deliberately sunk.  Jeez.

 

See the link for more on the story.

Very cool find.  Sad to think they just sank it when they were finished using it.
