Re: Have you ever hit a shipping container?
Your citations all refer to how containers supposedly behave (according to their manufacture's propaganda) under conditions to which they are normally exposed; that is, out of the water. We're talking about what happens when these containers (primarily made of steel a millimeter or two thick) is submerged in seawater 24/7 year after year. These are very different environments. After decades underwater my bet is that they will be well on their way to becoming part of the surrounding environment.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
