Reminds me of the story of HMS Porcupine, P-class destroyer launched by Vickers Armstrong on the River Tyne in 1941. Almost split in two by a German torpedo, the two halves became accommodation hulks in Portsmouth nicknamed HMS Pork and HMS Pine!

1. WOW

Thankfully only two crew members were slightly injured. This could have been much worse.
