Gee Dave now everyone wants to be a comedian,

Re your last, life's pretty dull if you can't laugh at yourself now and again. Going to wander downstairs and work on my PTs the wifes watching that damm dog woman again!

OK, I think I annoyed the neighbours enough plus it made me remember something, so how's this for a possible theory, and working on Ballards sonar dimensions as a rough guide.

After the hull of the 109 had rolled over and the crew had swum away I was wondering might the hull have done a Titanic and with the lower heaver section dragging downward might it have reached a point where the hull, not built to take such strain separated, with the lighter bow section now able to float quite easily and the heaver stern section sinking to the bottom.

One would normally think that this section of the boat would have gone down in that one piece however as she had suffered massive damage from the collision then this theory is just a possibility.

OK just thinking out load and having a bit of fun with it.
