Yeah I've seen it then. No it implies a very serious allegation against the crew.

I'd love to know exactly where the lifeboats from the titanic went after the were stored in a loft in New York. There is a suggestion that some of them were used to increase the life boats on the Olympic when it needed more life boats to comply with the new regulations.

It was grim stuff from Californian point of view alright, probably a bit overboard (no pun intended), but I enjoyed it all the same.

I have no idea what became of the lifeboats to be honest, I don't think I've ever read anything about that. It would make sense for them to be used on the Olympic provided they were still in good nick.

You know it was an obvious tragedy at the time but it didn't stop after the inquiries ended. The look out Frederick fleet took his own life years after the sinking. I mean it's easy for us to say that captain smith or murdooch was at fault or whoever but captain smith had been at sea for years and was the highest ranking captain in the company.

He was acting not unlike captains at sea at the turn of the 20th century. He had even said years before that shipbuilding had advanced so far to the point that ships were unsinkable. I mean we have to see it for the mindset at the time. The class of liners built by the white star line were wonders of their time.

The bulkheads not sealed at the top and the fact they didn't go to the top deck of the ship. I think they only went to C deck but I'd have to check.
I can assure you that Titanic was never aloft.

I don’t want to just barge into this thread but it is important not to anchorage people to speculate on potential saboateurs of the titanic. Imaging the greef that his family must feel. Watery to do with speculation anyway? It is ferry unfair to just make up accusations especially as it is likely that he had a wharf and kids (Proabably buoys). We should take this opportunaty to just put it best.

Ah come on. This is a serious thread and you are making crude jokes about seamen. I really can’t swallow that. You have sunk to a whole new low..

I know I know am sorry.... Yir one asked me later why was I laughing,.and I said am sorry but I could picture the seamen dancing before they drowned and it reminded me of an episode of Come Dancing...... That totally confused her

That was vaguely amusing - the first time it was posted in this thread.
