Agelbert NOTE: Here is the NTSB video of the El Faro's fatal last journey. What bothers me about this is that they do not say absolutely ANYTHING about the wave size or height. I continue to believe that at least one giant wave hit the El Faro, causing it to sink. The mangled bridge superstructure and the  broken in pieces lifeboat evidences this, yet the NTSB doesn't not want to talk about it.
The lifeboats on El Faro were 65 feet above the water line. From the condition of the lifeboat that was recovered, the evidence indicates a giant wave sank the El Faro.

Yes, the Captain screwed up. Yes, BVS weather service helped him screw up. Yes, the side holes in the El Faro made it less seaworthy in a hurricane. But, they could be secured in fairly bad weather. Only giant waves would be ferocious enough to break open the sealed hatches and overcome the ability of the bilge pumps to keep most of the sea out. I read the entire transcript (not shown in this abbreviated summary) and they were smacked massively several times in the last hour before the ship sunk. You can listen to the mayhem on the El Faro Bridge and hear the forceful catastrophic wave impacts at the link in the following quote:

NTSB Determines Probable Cause of EL FARO Sinking

December 12, 2017 by gCaptain

SNIPPET:

NTSB investigators worked closely with the U.S. military and federal- and private-sector partners to locate the wreckage, photo- and video-document the ship and related debris field, and recover the El Faro’s voyage data recorder from more than 15,000 feet under the surface of the sea – which proved critical to the investigation.
