The olympic was not as well build as you might think, in her final years, she had big cracks in her bridgedeck, after repairs, they re appear.
On the end she was not seaworthy anymore.
So that was her end..............shame

the reason for the sinking of Titanic was once giffen to be the bad sort of steel plates, they used in that time.
But i think that is a load of bs, she hit the bottom of the ocean at as speed of more than 20 knots, so her keel was bend, and the plates on the outside were bend at an angle of more than 90 degrees.
Was that steel of a better kind than that on the starboard side?
If it had been the shatering of the steel plates that were the course of her sinking those plates could not have bend like they did.
