Nothing to do with bad driving. As noted on the photo, this is Torpedo damage

That's the USS St Louis, after being hit with a torpedo she steamed back across the Pacific via Tulagi and Espiritu Santo for repairs. After repair at Mare Island in November she was back on station in December.

Yes I know, I was alluding to all those insurance adverts. I was driving along and a unicorn caused me to swerve- aka, I was just sailing along minding me own business and whoosh out of nowhere I was hit by a torpedo. Obviously I was being too obscure with my witicism.

Still to this day, water tight bulkheads between compartments......nothing like images of the boiler rooms being closed off in the Titanic.....but water tight man hole doors and bulkheads that can withstand the pressure of water against a full surface area


The USS Cole was a recent example of how these water tight bulk heads & doors function to keep a vessel afloat
