Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

Absolutely right - Titanic didn't have watertight bulkheads, it had the hull divided into a series of open topped tanks. Once the ship was nose down enough for the front tank top to be below water it was all over - they just spilled sequentially over the top.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
