Founder

A vessel which founders is one which sinks by flooding. Loosely, the foundered vessel is liable to have sunk in a generally upright position over a period of time (otherwise, preference would be given to other suitable terms (broke up, capsized, scuttled, plunged)). The term foundered and sank, despite redundancy, may also be used[1].
