Does not look to have too much reserve buoyancy here. I would be ready for her to tip over. Here's the thread on the accident in the Forum: http://www.shipsnostalgia.com/showthread.php?t=29000 Regards, Stein.

Indeed, with the water well over her after deck, it's surprising the after end didn't fill and the ship go to the bottom stern-first. Good compartmentalisation, obviously.
