Another reblog post. I’m trying to look again at this cool stuff. How did the Mary Rose sink? Stability is key to survival at sea.
The Sea is not a easy environment. Even to this day brand new ships sink right outside the harbor as designer push the limits and the unkind sea proves the designer wrong. The Mary Rose sank because the limits were pushed and changing technology made the ship unstable. Add a gust of wind and it was over.
