Looking at the damage in the ROV footage, that is a major tear in the hull. Coupled with minimal Damage Control efforts, you have lost.

I wonder about the number of trained damage control teams available in the present generation of ships designed for minimum sized crews.

It's hard to imagine keeping her afloat, even with heroic damage control.

It also drove home the point of how densely packed those small hulls are--any sort of hit would cause significant damage.

Yes, it is. Perhaps Helge Ingstad is the first victim.

it is, but if you give up the ship (right by a pier, with tugs standing by...) the size won't matter.
