Please don't compare a replica ship with today's modern Navy- that comparison just doesn't work. Todays Navy ships are built to absorb Mother Nature's fury whereas a replica isn't. The beam is too broad amongst other reasons.
I saw where the engines failed so they couldn't run the pumps to pump out the water they were taking in. The Navy would have better maintained engines and redundant systems as well.
It is a shame that the sea has claimed another person but you cannot say that ship was "worthy" of the conditions it encountered.
