    I think the tanker was damaged beyond repair by the expansion when becoming solid, but I didn't get the details.
    I thought water was the only thing that expanded when it solidified.  Well, you learn something new every day.

      I'm sort of like that quote by "Bones" McCoy of Star Trek, who would say, "Damit Jim, I'm a doctor not an engineer!'  Excepting for I'm not a doctor either.  ;-)
