The crew drops some tonnage down to Davey Jones' Locker. See how they pull off this surprisingly demanding project.

  • Shiver me timbers, they're scuttling ships on THE HISTORY CHANNEL®!
  • Engineers are put to the test relocating everything from 19th century churches to massive factories.
  • The ultimate in heavy lifting.


If you're the type who can't leave anything behind, you may have to call in the MEGA MOVERS. Whether it's a 19th century church, a railroad bridge or an entire beach there's nothing our experts can't relocate. Of course, when it comes time to lift a structure from its foundations and head down the road (at a fraction of a mile an hour), every creak and groan can provide a vital clue, and a mistake of an inch could spell disaster.

This is the up side of going down. WAY down!

Usually when the MEGA MOVERS crew tests its sea legs it's relocating, salvaging or rescuing massive watercraft or structures. In an unlikely twist, though, in this episode they're actually SINKING A SHIP! On purpose!

Planned submersions are actually pretty common - for artificial reefs, jetty material and simple disposal - but the process is far more complicated than just punching a hole in the hull and diving overboard. So get a little wet and discover the challenges and complications of bringing a 500 foot ship gently to rest on a precise spot 130 feet below the surface.

Dive down to the watery deep to see the MEGA MOVERS in action, bringing this ship to its final resting place.
