Last Sunday’s episode showed the Dawgs in Norfolk, VA, salvaging materials from the decommissioned Twin Capes ferry. The “MV Twin Capes” ran the Cape May-Lewes Ferry system from 1975-2013, crossing the Delaware Bay to connect North Cape May, New Jersey, with Lewes, Delaware. This was one of the original three vessels of the 1970s fleet, christened in May 1975. She was extensively renovated between 1994 and 1996 in a $27 million project and was taken out of service and retired in October 2013. In July 2017, the ferry was towed out of the Cape May Terminal, and, once salvaged, her final destination will be the sea floor as an artificial reef.
