    Wikipedia is a very logical source, you found instantly, but next time I will provides links to the source. Normally I do that.

    And thanks for being interested. Especially the pictures of the wrecked Endurance was quitte unbelievable. Totaly crushed to pieces.

    A ship's hull is a hole in the ice, if a hole expands it gets bigger and so the ice creates room for the ship.

    It's the force of moving ice, by wind and/or current and/or other ships, that is causing the damage.

    An example of surviving . . .

    I would say Endurance also was pretty much converted to junk. ;)

    And at completely the other end of the scale, photographed in a yacht yard in Rockport TX, yesterday. Just a random boat on the hard. I think that's a full grown oyster?
