ثغرة في القارب


Explanation:
Being the experience of some men from a sunk steamer, I am thinking of the difficulties they encountered. I am thinking that maybe here the word "open" refers to the fact that the boat was open to problems as well as open to destruction. The arabic word ثغرة conveys the meaning of a "gap" literally in the construction of the boat itself or metaphorically in the state of the people on the boat. So, here is a translation that you might like to consider.
