There's a Sunken Ship Under the Ballard Locks

File this under cool stuff you didn't know about Ballard: there's a sunken ship under the Locks, and a dive team's going down there to check up on it. A 165-foot Coast Guard ice cutter sank near the Ballard Locks sometime after 1954 after it was sold and essentially abandoned, and now the EPA is sending a team to make sure the wreck isn't leaking anything hazardous.
