Why, do you think the captain was drunk?

Re: What got you interested TITANIC?



well the Captain allegedly had not been well for some time, suffering from depression, and one could say paranoia, He thought someone was out to kill him. There again the ship was supposed to be trafficking arms as well so maybe they where.

If you can call him the captain when he was supposed to of locked himself in his cabin, turning smoke detectors off etc etc . He was probably just a drunk. or turned to drink to counter the depression. or fright.

To tell you the absolute truth, I was turned on to the Morro Castle just last week by a friend, and am just now starting to do research on her, so it's all new to me. I think the crew sounds like a bunch of scurvey rotten scum so far, but what do I know?

As it was not the original crew it is hard to say. But the original crew where not much better, Most could not speak English and majority had problems of there own.
