At approximately what time did the forecastle touch the water?

    I was just wondering, what time did the forecastle deck first meet the water surface?
  2. I think it was late in the sinking, between approx. 1:50 A.M. and 2:05 A.M.

    1:40 a.m. is about when it touched

    I was wondering, when did the bow begin to go under, as in the well deck and forecastle deck begin to flood?

    I would estimate about two hours into the sinking.
  6. Would you say the final sinking speeded up at this point ?

    Most likely.
  8. Forecastle would have hit the water around the time the Titanic almost hit equal Librium
  9. Better picture as you can see when the bridge hit the water

    About 2:05 a.m. when QM Bright saw the forecastle head going under. The sinking did speed up at this point.
