Wordle 424 — a Sinking Feeling

Year from scratch,
Line discount feared;
Finish safe with heat and patch;
Hull not granite; ship not geared
Single fire by coal-oil seared.

According to these findings, the Titanic had been on fire internally for some time before the sinking, and it has emerged that cost-cutting exercises occurred including a patch in the hull. This and other articles on the same theme make fascinating reading — and contribute nicely to my usual economical Wordle!
