Question Regarding the Black Rock, the Tidal Wave and the Statue

So, I've heard that it wasn't really the Black Rock that destroyed ol' Tawaret, but instead the insanely-big-and-strong tidal wave. This I think is a better explanation. But also, it certainly seems that the Black Rock smashes into the Statue (correct me if I'm wrong but I swear just as it collides with the head it cuts to black). If this is so, and the Statue is in fact made of stone or soemthing (as it seems to be) and the ship is made of wood (which I'm sure it is), surely the ship, or at least it's front, would smash into pieces upon collision, no matter how sturdy it was?
