Too bad Oregon doesn't handle marine salvage as cleanly.

So then you get a bulk freighter stuck on the sand, and it starts to leak, what does
the state decide is the best option,.... well, blow it up! Not once, but twice.



Then when the ship broke up, they towed the bow out to sea, shot it up with a destroyer, torpedoed it, then
set charges and blew a hole in it and sank it offshore.
