There just wasn't enough time to do anything to correct the list as far as I'm aware of.

Has anyone come across an account of a "dent" and crack running across the centre of the ship below the water line during the 1919 refit
Would this be due to any buckling of the hull or any other reason that may shed light on why the Titanic broke in half ..

No Keith, it's because Olympic was hit by a torpedo.

Two were fired, one missed and the other one struck amidships between the second and third funnels. The one which did hit its target failed to explode and nobody onboard noticed at the time.

Best wishes

Mark.
