I will need to dig out the photos of the research ship sinking in the middle east two years ago. It just shows the professionalls get it wrong as well. ( it was around 4000grt) They had a sonar which lowered into a well in the bottom of the ship to operate and shuld have been attached with safety chains in case of a failure of the lifting/lowering equipment. They didn't, and it did and the whole heavy boom went right through the bottom of the ship, pump problems were next and 20 mins everybody was in the lifeboats watching the ship sink taking everything with it.
