Unhappy Sad Images

and even so two impressive notes:

That wreck was maintained afloat by the system devised to make it unsinkable, even broken in two and pushed down by almost 4 T of ballast.

even in that state and battered for more than a week by a huge storm that keel maintains itself attached to the hull.

I hope they can found out what went wrong on that hull and if needed take preventive measures to make these boats even more seaworthy.
