The Thai navy has sunk a decommissioned warship near Koh Larn in Pattaya Bay to create a second artificial reef and marine breeding ground in honor of the King of Thailand’s 60th year on the throne.

The United States gave this ship (Former USS LSM-338) renamed HTMS KUT to the Thai navy during 1962. The ship, now dilapidated beyond repair, has been in use for more than 60 years. It now lies just slightly North of Koh Sak in around 30 meters of water.
