Neither one actually perished in the action at the end of 20,000 Leagues Under The Seas!

From their simultaneous observations, they were able to estimate the mammal's minim-um length at more than 350 English feet;1 this was because both the Shannon and the Helvetia were of smaller dimensions, although each measured 100 meters stem to stern.
