I'm gonna suggest that since the ship was going to iran, it was likely empty other than the ballst water.
Only if you tell me how you make an implosion. Did you ever see a purely implosion device? If so I'd be interested in patenting it. OTherwise that as a theory just sucks
I speculate that it was laden with air mostly. Or maybe vacuum implosion devices.

So the most likely culprit is a 'rising mine'. It's the type of mine that lays in wait, using passive sensors. If it detects a target, it rises from the seabottom and fires a projectile.
The Chinese have been busy developing this type of mine with a guided missile surprise. Like an evil fortune cookie.
