Oh I understand. Im not saying that its a proven fact I was just stating that could be a reasion why in the Skidmore drawing had the prowl of the ship breaking the surface.
Thayer did say somewhere that the sketch wasn't an accurate representation of what he told Skidmore.>>but what did Thayer say to Skidmore to give the latter the impression that the bow broke the water after the break?<<
Unfortunately, the details of that conversation have apparantly been lost to history. The best evidence we have of what might have been discussed are the sketches themselves. The catch here is that short of dialing 1-800-OujiaBoard and asking Jack Theyer himself, we have no way of knowing what is an accurate reflection of what he said and what is artistic license.
Thayer was one of those who said the boat deck rose up momentarily after the ship returned from a port list to an even keel and dipped down again.>>tell me where is the grand staircase because it could not go into thin air,<<
Everywhere, in itty bitty pieces.
>>if thayer saw an object what he thought was the forecastle deck...<<
Once again, you need to study the actual history and be mindful of what's being discussed in the posts above. Jack Theyer NEVER said that he saw the bow section pop up as portrayed in the drawings penned by Mr. Skidmore.
Not in sworn testimony, not in his book, and not in any sworn statements, affidavits or accounts. The sketch is the interpolation of the artist.
>>it is possible he saw huge pieces of the grand staircase <<
Yes, it's possible. Possible however is not even remotely the same thing as probable. Regardless of that, anything that came out would have gone the way of any wooden material ejected from the wreck. Any which was not picked up at sea or washed up as flotsum and jetsum on some distant beach would have decomposed into lunch for any marine denezins which find wood to be a tasty snack.
