Knowing it would be running in Northern Ice prone seas did they strengthen Titanic's bows at all?
What are "half water tight doors"?He made us aware that in 1912 Olympic class liners were a little bit behind in safety and technical construction. He has images on another thread of the emperator's (built in 1912 1913) bow, safety water tight doors (full lenthgh) and her (full lenghth double hull).
At the time of titanics madian voyage, titanic had half water tight doors, and a double hull not the full lenghth of the bow from etc.. Waterline to only F deck ect... Olympic class liners already were lacking behind.
Actually, the Titanic did not, sail in normally Ice Prone seas.Knowing it would be running in Northern Ice prone seas did they strengthen Titanic's bows at all?
The "half watertight doors" probably refers to the bulkheads of the Titanic, most of which ran up to E-Deck.What are "half water tight doors"?
Where did Titanic had a double hull? She had a double bottom.
The ship simply was not build to had 6 compartments damaged and flooded by the sea.
