But some live men and women do. I never accept anything I read in a book or see in a video that does not list the source of their information. And even then, if you go back and check the source you may find a different story than what was told or implied. Titanic is one subject that tends to generate visions and embellishments by authors and producers trying to make a name for themselves or get lots of money out of a project or both. A ripe area for exploitation because the general public doesn't know enough what to believe or not to believe. Worse are those who claim they are trying to dispel some myths and do so by creating new ones. And Titanic is one subject that has generated much of that and will continue to do so.quote:

That is correct Matt, as water inside comes up toward the waterline, the flooding rate will decrease. I show this in a graph of flooding rate Vs. height in my article over on the TRMA site called, SOMEWHERE ABOUT 12 SQUARE FEET.quote:
even though flood rate should decrease as the water inside the ship raises
By 3rd boiler room I assume counting from forward going aft. That would be BR 4. (Boiler rooms, also called sections, were numbered 1 through 6 with No. 6 the most forward of the bunch.)quote:
Titanic(1953) claimed that the ship's third boiler room was flooded well before the forward-well deck flooded. As the room was flooded, the interior exploded.
