I certainly don't want to question the quality of the work without more knowledge, but there is certainly little room for error with regard to submarines.

The Kursk, Thresher, Scorpion and a host of others over decades clearly shows the almost unimaginably difficult conditions these vessels operate under.

I can only feel heart break for the families of those lost. Without wanting to sound callous, let's hope it was quick.
