Re: Last Log Of The TITANIC


Well, Wills, it explains the whole thing from the perspective of someone with experience of [sign in to see URL] it is explained in a forthright easy to understand [sign in to see URL] real "plus" when things get "tchy"...he is a little brutal on Smith and [sign in to see URL] shortcoming Capt. Brown has admitted, and has promised to rectify in subsequent editions...

Re: Last Log Of The TITANIC


Hi lights

Personally I like the book, Like you say he is heavy on Smith and Ismay and a few other points but other than that it is a good read.

Graham who is hoping not to have to walk the plank

Re: Last Log Of The TITANIC


There was a certain amount of discussion on this other places as well. From what I understand, the general consensus is whether or not she continued steaming, chances are she was wounded beyond repair period. The steaming-ahead may have caused extra strain on the commpartment walls, but not enough to actually do enough damage to change the equation - she was mortally wounded by the ice and that was that. At most it made the ship sink a bit more quickly, but that would have been it.

Re: Last Log Of The TITANIC


Hi TTF

I know this is the wrong thread for this but lets look at another little posser. What if titanic had carried on steaming in reverce

I have played with a model in the tank and yes I kow that a model reacts totaly different to the real thing, but the entering water did not come in half as fast in reverce as it did in forword.

I wonder if she could of closed the gap a lot had she reverced, I know I do not believe that the titanic would of stayed afloat regardless what they did but it is a point worth bringing up I supose.

We;ll, my only comment is that it worked with HMS [sign in to see URL] how far she had to [sign in to see URL] managed it for about a hundred miles, but Smith would have had at least 300-400 miles to the closest port.

Re: Last Log Of The TITANIC


Hi Ligts

It would of only been a first aid sort of thing, But as the bottom of Titanic was holed it may not of made a difference anyway
