Fun Fact: H.M.H.S. Britannic, sister ship to the R.M.S. Titanic, sank in water shallower than the ship was long. (Britannic: 882 ft, Water: 400ft.) Because this is such shallow water, life is much more abundant. Unlike Titanic, who is covered with rusticales, Britannic is covered with Coral and other forms of life. In fact, the amount of life living on Britannic is so thick that when the ship actually deteriorates away, the life forms that were once on her hull will still resemble the shape of her hull for many years after the ship is gone.
