Eric,

Thanx for the link to this nice site! Though I didn't knew the Oceanos, it's interesting to see the demolition of a ship within 10 years. The remains on the haunting pictures still look very intact. I wonder if Titanic's wreck would have looked the same in 1922.

Regards,
Rolf.

Yes, the ship is still in one piece as far as I know. Do you recall seeing the film of her sinking? It was broad daylight, and her bow went down until she stood at 90 degrees, her stern out of the water. She then slowly settled, still at 90 degrees, until she disappeared. Quite a sight....
