I didn't find this topic in the threads, but I'm sure it might be hidden somewhere. Anyway, I'm very curious if the iceberg could have been avoided had the captain judged best to go with engines on full and steered hard to the left, would the Titanic have been damaged to some degree anyway? Considering all the variables, the crew had less than a minute to react, could the boat had steered sharply in the amount of time? And I just thought now whether other icebergs were nearby. I wonder if there were no icebergs then she could have turned with no worry of hitting anythng. Maybe the captain was thinking with caution, than to turn sharp with engines full power, he'd hit something else. On the other hand what makes me think that the captain did not think of this was perhaps clouded panicky thinking and more like a reaction than a smart decision. Please, your thoughts (again) thanks!.
