A question for the nautical engineers here because I don't know about these things. But was the breakup caused more by the weight of the bow being full of water or the angle of the stern hanging out in the air? I ask because I once sailed thru a typhoon and my ship I'm pretty sure was at angles greater than 10-12%. That was with the stern in the air and the bow crashing thru waves. I don't think there was any concern of us snapping in 2 because we weren't half full water like Titanic was. They told us at one point we were going thru 60 ft seas. I don't know if that's true or not but that's what they said. Just curious. Maybe Titanic wasn't built as good as she could have been. Cheers.
