Paul and everyone--I don't agree with Captain Collins' conclusions. However as a writer I must protest ad hominem attacks against the author. Let's stick to a discussion of the facts of Titanic and forget personal diatribes.
Seconding what David said here. And I'm going to nip this one in the bud befor it get's out of hand. I don't agree with Duke's conclusions either, but they are the observations of an pilot experienced in ice navigation. Anyone who wishes, may agree or differ as they choose, but kindly argue the points based on the evidence rather then attacking the person.
