"Spee" Lunking

Jeff gets a no-prize covered in barnacles for bringing us news of attempts to raise the German battleship, Graf Spee. Located not far off the coast of Uruguay in comparatively shallow water, the ship has recently been discovered to be in fairly good shape. Divers are today planning on raising the range finder, a component that held the first radar antenna installed on the ship. From the very brief mentions provided in the article, it appears their plan is to raise the ship bit by bit and re-assemble it in a (land-based) museum nearby.
