True...I wonder if it was just a case of "don't change the design if you don't get complaints".

Lightsy, that was what the entire tragedy was built upon - "Let's see if they don't notice".

Re: The fire aboard


Hi TTF

Great point and good observation. Fires though where a common thing and not seen as a problem as such just a damn inconvieniance.

Re: The fire aboard


One of the points I found so interesting in Last Log was how this could have impacted the life of the ship - yet coal bunker fires were a commonplace in these ships, from what I've read.

Did they never weaken the outside hull? I know that many ships didn't even have a double bottom, much less a double hull, and if the steel was as brittle (on occasion) as has been claimed, I would think that this would cause major problems.

Hi TTf

Yes it did damage the outside hull but ships where checked for this all the time, as it was a common thing it was also a common repair on bad fire ones.
