    Watertight Doors closed BEFORE Collision in film

    In this film, Murdoch orders the watertight doors closed moments BEFORE the Titanic hits the iceberg. It seems to me that this film is implying that Murdoch realized the Titanic was too close to avoid the iceberg and that the collision was imminent and that he ordered the doors closed as a...

    Watertight doors during the Hawke Collision

    As most of us know; the Olympic was nearly identical to the Titanic save for her exposed Promenade deck and nameplates...

I have submitted a report to the editor of this site...

    Open the Watertight Doors!

    *sigh* this one again, eh? There's been a lot of study on this theory Sandy. Frankly, and no offense intended to you personally, it's a load of crap, probably dreamed up by some hack to sell a poorly researched book or documentary.
