TeenerTot I have a phobia about the undersides of boats. I can look at boats in water, and even get aboard them, but I won't go near one in dry-dock. Seeing the underside of a boat on water is especially willy-inducing.
The Mothership wikipedia tells me that it was a rustbucket with a negligent crew who fled the ship without raising the alarm, or closing watertight bulkheads.
