I find it very difficult to believe that a properly designed ship, loaded within its allowable limits, would be capsized by a thunderstorm or even a tornado. I know that it’s far more difficult to determine the strength of a tornado that is over water, but I do know ship’s stability. The few pictures I’ve found of this ship before the capsize show something with a great deal of sail area, and looks a bit top heavy, that is, inadequate stability. Something is amiss.
