Re: Last Log Of The TITANIC


I think paid was pretty much put to TITANIC, what with damage to five compartments, and probably damage to her double bottom as [sign in to see URL] only had damage to the bow and the collision bulkhead could be shored up enough to get her where she was [sign in to see URL], there's a whale of a big difference between 100 miles and 300-plus.

probably damage to her double bottom as well

No probably about it, there was water coming up from under the floorplates in boiler room 4 about an hour and forty minutes after the collison that could only have come from such damage.

Re: Last Log Of The TITANIC


Whilest David Brown was about the only person to mention on the grounding theory, It is well documented elwhere.

If the records of the inquest are read even Hichens remarked that the ship had grounded in a way but as this would constitute off topic I better move it elswhere

No it isn't, you're offering a valid comparison.

Re: Last Log Of The TITANIC


Sorry TTF

It was suposed to have a smiley after it but I appear to of missed it out.

Hichens in his testimony stated that he thaught the ship had run aground, I am not sure of the exact words and will go find later today .

The theory whioch in a way is not a theory but like You say obvious, I find increasingly difficult to understand why it took so many years to publish in the public domain. I know many years ago it was discussed in ET and totaly shot down by the then big boys. Funny how even they had to change direction on it.
