Here's the part I like:
The British government says it is "distressed" by the reports and is investigating.
The Dutch defence ministry is to investigate the mysterious disappearance.
So, exactly how do you carry out these investigations? Check the water for fingerprints? Ask some of the local fish if they've seen anything "human-y" lately? Maybe break a few fins until you get some answers. Do you put Columbo or Clouseau on the case?
I really want to know how this investigation would go. When was the last time they were seen? Who was the last person to see them? Do they have an alibi? Maybe this is a job for Banacek. He was always good at finding large things that mysteriously disappeared. And he always got some action while solving the case. That's important.
I would thoroughly investigate Jennifer Connelly. She may have nothing to do with it, but that's the direction I would go.

Pre-1945 steel is in high demand and expensive. All steel made after that has contamination from the nuclear tests after 1945. Steel used in the production of sensitive instruments cannot have even the slightest elevation in radiation.
Someone figured out a stealthy way to lift those ships and salvage the metal. IMO.
Not really true anymore - it was, to a degree, when there was a lot of radioactive dust in the air and instruments weren't built to correct for background radiation, but doesn't apply anymore.
Interesting though, I hadn't known about it before reading your post and looking it up. Th is Straight Dope article gives the most concise explanation I found.
