For you engineers. I did a search but couldn't find what I was looking for. When the California stopped for the night and around the time when the rockets were observed what state would the California's boilers have been in? Hypothetically if the radio operator was awoken after the rockets were seen and Titanic's condition was found out could the California have just opened her stop valves and throttle and taken off or would she need to build up pressure. And if so how long would that take? I'm sure this has been covered but I couldn't find it. Thanks...SC.
