Thanks! I was also inspired to paint it from your ‘sinking in real time’ animation. Good stuff. Lucy doesn’t get enough love. She’s the ugliest wreck ever.

Yep the wreck is basically a scrap heap, but oddly enough i find the bow somewhat majestic. Maybe its just my nostalgia for Ken's work

The bow still has some dignity, at least it did back in the 90’s when it was explored last. I’d bet she’s in really rough shape nowadays.

I've read that part of the reason why the wreck is in such bad shape is because it was sometimes used as target practice.

That's quite a shame. :(

And is the Lusitania decaying faster than the Titanic because she's so messed up and in shallower water?

To get a complete look at the wrecks condition, i would check the companion document in the Real-Time sinking topic on page 14
