Re: cameron movie nit picks...you got em i know


Yet another big factual Mistake!!

You all know how dangerous it is to be in the vicinity of a bigger ship floating nearby, it produces huge waves that make a little boat tilt and many times turn over. However, at the beginning of the movie, when Titanic is leaving the port, there is a fishing boat nearby with a fisherman in it. That tiny boat did not even move!! emoticon

Re: cameron movie nit picks...you got em i know


hi all, i am matt, hope she hasnt said anything too bad about [sign in to see URL] want to make a comment and you may find it silly but bare with me, in regards to what titanica said, there are severe maneuvering restrictions on ships when entering or leaving ports. Ships are, and have been, limited to 3 knots when under restricted maneuvering. Furthermore, I work on a nearly 100,000 ton ship and I've seen small craft nearby as we've left port. The CG cutter that normally escorts us into port comes as close as 50 yards even while we're still in the channel, moving as fast as 15-20 kts. There really are no technical problems with the small boat being in that vicinity of the Titanic. Just wanted to throw my two cents worth in there. The only problem I see is that it must have been very intimidating being in the fishing boat with 50,000 tons of steel moving at you... Sorry if I seem to be nit-picking, but I just wanted to share a little of my sea-time experiences with you.

Respectfully, Matt

Hello Matt, thanks for pointing that out (and welcome aboard). I said that because I have been once in a small fishing boat where a big oil tanker was passing us, and boy did we rock!! We were like a baby's cradle on full speed. emoticon However, if (from your experience) you see that there was no problem for a tiny boat to be so close to a huge ship like RMS Titanic, then I owe JC an oppology!! Once again welcome aboard RMS Titanic, and thanks for sharing that important info with us. emoticon

Re: cameron movie nit picks...you got em i know


Hey titanica, its actually me this time. For those that dont know what just happened that was my husband responding in the last post and he is a great person, but he will talk forever if the subject of sea travel comes up. It is his dream job so he saw an oppertunity to share some of his own experiences and he loves that. He wasnt trying to pick on you titanica he just saw an oppertunity to talk about his work( that and he is always interested in what i am doing)so to avoid any further confusion he is now navynuke01 so we should see some rather interesting posts from [sign in to see URL] like me real outgoing and respectful but loves to talk about work when he can.
