Hi!

What was Titanics Total horsepower ?



Olympic's -- essentially the same as Titanic's -- was estimated to be capable of a maximum of 59,000 horsepower in 1911. There is no record, to my knowledge, of whether this was specified as shaft horsepower or indicated horsepower.

Best regards,

Mark.

That's probably correct for normal service, but I'd believe Olympic's Chief Engineer and his 59,000 horsepower anyday.

I didn't know that there was a Lusitania lecture in Liverpool.

Best regards,

Mark.

Hi Mark

I agree with you a engineer would have more info than most and has no reason to miss interpret it either.

The Lusitania lecture is on May 6th, Merseyside maritime museum, lecture theatre at 7-30 doors open 6-30. It is by Diana Preston and titled wilful murder. I hope to be staying over for the night as well but will let all know.

Regards
Graham

awww i would like to have gone to that.... however circumstances will not let me...
i hope you will get a lot of picture graham so you can post them on here.
looking forward to hearing your story of what all Preston has to say.... like i said before she does have a interesting theory and a very interesting way of putting things into perspective.
