Hendrickson could not see the tunnel entrance by looking down the port-side staircase on G deck. But he would be able to see water at the base of the stairs look down the 24 ft from the port side of the staircase. The bottom of the stairs was completely open at the base, and there was nothing to impede the flow of water there except for the stairs themselves. He said the direction from which the water was pouring in seemed to come from the starboard side. He apparently didn't bother to go and look down the starboard side stairs which was also close by, to see what was doing at the base there. Since there nothing to block the tunnel entrance, water would eventually flood the tunnel itself as far aft as the watertight door on bulkhead D.

Captain Dave who?

<snort> I wouldn't have gone down there either! Seeing, even hearing what was going on would have been enough to convince me that the place would be a health hazard!
