Empire Windrush sinking I believe was due to crew not being able to turn off vent fans as a result the fire was assisted considerably.Lloyds as a result insisted on isolating switches being up on boat deck.Empire Fowey had many innovations such as a funnel extension worked hyraulically.Steaming it came up in port down to give a better outline.
