Hi Steven,

What charts were you speaking off?

Of the four known officers that had thier weight recorded after titanic sinking, I weigh heavier than them at 69 kgs. I'm only 5 foot 4.

Theres actually a thread on this subject. Link below. I will see later if I can find the charts I was looking at. There was a differance but it wasn't as large I was expecting. But in relation to my lifeboat curiousity the data might be apples an oranges. I think you would have to take in other factors that might skew the data. For example people who go on vacation on cruise ships today probably don't look much like the people who go vaction to climb Mt. Everest or shoot the rapids down the Grand Canyon. So the people on cruise ships might tend to favor more on one end of the scale than the others. But overall if I remember right the average between 1912 and 2012 was only like 10 lbs differance. I remember I was expecting it be greater.
