    Anatomy of the Iceberg

    I was searching through the Encyclopedia Titanica forums for a thread that dealt specifically with what we know of the Titanic iceberg itself.

    Was the Hull near G-Deck damaged?

    Was the Hull near G-Deck, (for example, the Mail Room) damaged in the collision? As soon, or immediately after, the Mail Room was reported to be flooding, and as we know, the Mail Clerks began to try to drag the mailbags up to Higher Ground. Being the closest Deck to the top of the waterline...

    Icebergs while in lifeboats

    Hello all! Can anyone indicate to me who claimed they heard water splashing on bergs nearby or saw them from the lifeboats? Were there multiple witnesses to this or was it a single witness (Mr. Boxhall)?

    The Iceberg

    ATTN: Sam & Jim C., I understand that you guys are discussing the eyewitness testimony in regards to the iceberg on a seperate topic. I too am intrigued by the "white monstor". A photograph, as the caption notes, bearing better pedigree than most (red paint along base), taken by the Chief...
