This mosaic of two ANGUS images taken at the time of Robert Ballard’s discovery shows what appears to be considerable height between the "exploded" shell plating at the right, seemingly far below, and the Boat Deck. The assumption is made because of the difference in relative brightnesses of the areas illuminated by the vehicle’s strobe flash. This apparent distance to the splayed plating below led me to assume that A and B Decks here might be in good shape. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
