Re: How would you have escaped the Titanic?


If all the boats had gone I would try to stay onboard the ship as long as poss to minimise the time in the freezing water then as the ship goes down try swim for a lifeboat or any debris I could use as a raft.

If I knew all the boats were gone, I would like to think I would try to make some type of raft, maybe a door. I wonder why more passengers did not do that, lack of time perhaps and easy said than done.
