Didn't you get the impression that the hatches failed and allowed too much water to engulf the holds?
Yep, but what about grounding out on the 35-40' shoal with 60 ft waves? Or was that theory proved wrong, not sure.

That's the theory I subscribe too. It's happened before and will happen again.

I see how it is. I post this same subject on THE DAY of the anniversary and it gets closed.

Whatever.

Thanks for bringing this up. A good friend of mine was a real Edmond Fitzgerald buff, even visited the museum. Every year he would get some Edmond Fitzgerald Ale from a specialty beer store and we would toast the lost sailors. Unfortunately, my friend died this spring of leukemia. This year we have to have a toast for him also.
