Scuttling has been mentioned a few times now, but how exactly was it done and did navies have specific procedures for it?

Did some ships come designed with a method of sinking the ship “easily” when it was threatened with capture or were the methods of sinking your own ships more improvised? And were sailors trained on how to scuttle their own ship or was it considered something perhaps shameful and not to be considered until the situation demanded it? Thanks for all your wonderful shows and please send my regards to the TimeGhost super-crew.


I love this channel.
