How did it go Tracy?! I have started a chat about this sinking model under 'Collision/Sinking Theories', where I thought it was more appropriate than 'Books'.

It was very interesting, but I wish I'd had a bigger pool of water than my bathtub. I did it over and over and it performed exactly the same way each time.

I also put the model in the water with the bottom latch in the opposite direction, where the ship would not break apart. Very different results here. Almost as soon as I put the ship in the water, it would take on a port list, and would end up sinking stern first each time. Anyone else try this?

Hi Tracy,

I haven't tried that, but I'm going to now that you mention it.

Best regards,

Jason

I also tried sinking the model in the locked position so the ship wouldn't break aprt. However mine rolled to starboard and then port and sank much like the Andrea Doria. I tried it again and this time it sank Stern first. I tried it again and sank like th Andrea Doria again. I am eager to get it into a pool where I can accuratly judge things a little better.
