My thoughts,

Any vessel that may be recovering from a knock down or just on it's side that takes a subsequent hit from a large wave, will put loads on parts that would not necessarily have been tested at this angle with this pressure in mind.

Our 470e has twelve bolts holding the keel to the structural frame within the hull, our rudder, a big wing in its own right I think passes through two bearings before being bolted down.  A weak point when in this situation agreed, but it didn't sink so an assumption must be made that the rudder or part thereof is jammed in the orifice preventing water ingress.

As you say it would be interesting to gather any more information such as what was the repair made to the rudder mechanism in the Med.  It would be even more useful if the vessel could be recovered and handed back to Hanse to be stripped back and learn what must be a note book of lessons.
