    The STROG (Strait of Gibraltar) is 13 km (8 miles) wide and between 300 - 900 meters deep (950 - 3000 feet).

      Perhaps, but right there in the upper left hand corner near that Small Rock that sticks out is The British Naval Base & there in the middle is the right location to potentially attempt to block it.

      Ok, ok, it's 8 Miles wide.

      But if one Major Capital Ship is Sunk there, then there is the possibility of thought that another can be sunk there too.

        OK, I see the issue, the STROG, the Bay of Gibraltar (which you have pictured) and Gibraltar Harbour (the upper left of your pic) are all different geographical features.

        The harbour itself has an inner and outer area, defined by breakwaters and a detached breakwater known as the "mole'.

        Your scheme might be feasible, if extraordinarily difficult, if you are trying to seal the inner harbour.

        A fabulous read is the tale of Italian navy 'human torpodoes' and their war in Gibraltar Harbour. It even has a ship with an underwater entrance for submarines
