Apparently Noah was the only person able to build something that didn't leak, but not sure what pressure he was using internally for his water pipes to hydrate his passengers.abc123 wrote:PhillyJ wrote:Indeed, ship still afloat and all crew safe and well.

Pretty sure that a warship should not leak water like that.
Sincerely, I also never served in navy ( light infantry ), so I don't know a lot too. Especially about this incident. But, if the water passes trough bulkheads ( because of the rain ), I can't see that as good thing.
