There are dozens of films out there, from the WW2 era, that show ships literally disintegrating after they've been hit by something or after a boiler
has exploded... Beyond that, most high energy explosions create a mushroom cloud of sorts.
I can't think of the name of the steamer, but, at the end of the civil war, a paddlewheeler carrying freed POWs back up the missippi suffered a
catstrophic boiler failure. The thing vaporized, killing something like 1000 people. According to this guy's logic, the Union possesed atomic
weapons in 1865.

Also, I can't imagine that the military would ship its first a bomb in a fully assembled state. None of the facts, in this theory, line up.
