The Stockholm is now held to account for the collision.
BTW, the ship was 'top heavy' and when it listed to the side AFTER A LARGE WAVE half the life boats were unable to be lowered.
Until just now in reviewing the stories on this particular sinking I hadn't realized there were reports of A LARGE WAVE. At that time in history ship's captains and officers were NOT supposed to believe in LARGE WAVES, only SMALL WAVES ~ there were no ROGUE WAVES if you wanted to keep your license. We now know ROGUE WAVES are common. Satellites keep track of ocean basins with a history of such waves. They can be predicted to some degree.
So, the Andrea Doria was hit by another ship and a rogue wave in close proximity, maybe simultaneously, and the crew could not lower all the boats, but everybody who could be saved was saved.
This event is not at all similar to the more recent cruise ship problem.
Survivors complained bitterly about the bad behavior of the crew of the Andrea Doria.
