One of U.S. Coast Guard’s most famous vessels, the “Perfect Storm” cutter Tamaroa, will now have a new role after being sunk off Cape May on Wednesday.

The ship is to become part of an artificial reef located 26 nautical miles southeast of Cape May and comprised of old military ships that is enhancing fishing opportunities off New Jersey and Delaware.

The 205-foot vessel rose to fame after her daring rescues during a brutal 1991 East Coast storm. Formerly known as the Navy fleet tug Zuni, Tamaroa was featured in the bestselling book The Perfect Storm and the movie of the same name.
