Ok! Melinda!
I will be nice, and show you the pros and cons of this!
#1- Stone and Gibson saw the rockets!
They also observed a "big" liner coming up and saw it stop. They thought she was surrounded by ice as well.
You made a very good point about the Cptn. trusting his crew, and I do believe they should have done more in alerting him to the rockets!
I am pretty sure either Stone or Gibson said,"A ship like that doesn't fire rockets for nothing.." So why did they not take better action in alerting their Cptn?
At one point they even said she looks queer out of the water!
They saw the lights on her afterdeck. Something associated with big passenger steamers.
The lights are kept lit for the passengers to stroll the decks.
#2- There were other ships! The Mount Temple will always be the one that sticks with me! She came and stopped!
#3- The Norwegian whaler was no where near Titanic on that fateful night! I wont go into that here!
#4- You are right! Be nice! Ask your questions and learn like we all do! This is the best source on Titanic for my dollar and I felt like I had come home when I found it!
Best Reguards! -Don

If Hitchens was anything like his character in the movie, which I'm sure he is not, but then again who is to say, I sure didn't like him much. Nasty little man wasn't he?

I do really appreciate how everyone, especially you Adam, and no I'm not playing favorites here, have been so nice to me since I have only been here a couple of days and pretty much don't agree with all of you, have felt a little ganged up a couple of times, then I remember that I want to "discuss" this subject and we are not all going to agree with each other.

So bring it on, I'm a big girl.

Fast response there Melinda!
Debating the subject is probably one of the best qualities of Titanic obsession!

Thanks Don

I am sure there are a million questions in my head, just can not think of them all at the same time.

A lot of what you all are saying I have heard before, but when you hear things in a different context they can seem to mean something completely different, know what I mean?

Melinda thanks for the compliment......actu ally I don't really know a whole lot about Hithens, though I bet some here do, but I think he had some trouble with the law, read his bio, on et. I think he was pretty nasty on that night, only in real life Molly Brown won the battle.

Now wouldn't that be one woman you would have liked to have met, imagine a woman like that back then, a lot of woman don't have her guts even in this day and age.

It was cool to see people almost chatting.
Is there a place where people chat about Titanic?
