From that pic you can tell the McCain was dead in the water. There is no shear damage from a ship under power. It was a direct hit ! The McCain would have been under full power to get out of the way of a ship that was 4 times it's size. It was also full daylight as far as I know. No shear no power. Look at where the "V" shaped part of the haul hit the war ship. Not one inch of shear.

Look at the photo:

Also being hit from the side, if there was any forward or reverse motion of the warship there would have been at least a few feet of shear damage. Maybe even a few inches. The "V" from were the oil tanker hit it shows that the McCain was not in any forward or reverse motion. Anyone that knows metals would understand that this warship was disabled.
