Why not just "ark" ? Missed it cause when that wasn't accepted I thought it was some other narrative. Also a bit annoyed I missed Calypso. Duh. Watched enough Cousteau documentaries as a kid to know that!

I would think the Battleship Potemkin is a little more well known from the film. Had that been mentioned I would have gotten it instantly. Other famous boats to consider, Mary Celeste, HMS Beagle, RMS Lusitania, USS Maine, SS Edmond Fitzgerald,
