Pictures of Damage to Hadley’s Hull

Diagram of damage to the ship.

 


The severity of Hadley’s damage can be seen in this photo, where the starboard screw
is noticeably out of position. Notice how much farther aft it is than the port screw.


Starboard screw being held by starboard rudder, after
damage to the ship had forced the propeller shaft aft.
Later found that both propeller shafts were sheared.
