Why not just "ark" ? Missed it cause when that wasn't accepted I thought it was some other narrative. Also a bit annoyed I missed Calypso. Duh. Watched enough Cousteau documentaries as a kid to know that!

I would think the Battleship Potemkin is a little more well known from the film. Had that been mentioned I would have gotten it instantly.

Other famous boats to consider, Mary Celeste, HMS Beagle, RMS Lusitania, USS Maine, SS Edmond Fitzgerald,

Fun quiz. I would like to mention a few ships that have ties to my state of Connecticut. The Amistad was a famous slave ship in the 1800s and the Charles W Morgan is a famous whaling ship still on display in our state. Also, the USS Constitution still survives in Boston. Thanks for the quiz.
