Where was or which was that Pilot Station ?
Too easy going perhaps? Here is the exact exchange of words between Smith and Bowyer in the seconds before Hawke struck Olympic:However, I think that Capt. Smith was very cooperative and an easy going person. Two qualities needed to assure a calm and serine bridge team work management and endeavor.
Titanic's fictional twin the ''Titan'' certainly had a Sail Area! I let myself out...
How the ''Titan'' would have appeared in [bcolor=rgb(252, 252, 255)]Morgan Robertson[/bcolor] ''Futility'' or ''Wreck Of The Titan'' (1898).
Too easy going perhaps? Here is the exact exchange of words between Smith and Bowyer in the seconds before Hawke struck Olympic:
Captain Smith: “I do not believe he will go under our stern Bowyer.”
Bowyer: “If she is going to strike let me know in time to put our helm hard-aport.”
Smith did not reply immediately, and a few seconds later Bowyer asks: “Is she going to strike us or not, sir?”
Smith: “Yes Bowyer, she is going to strike us in the stern.”
Bowyer calls out: “Hard-aport!” and helmsman QM Albert Haines just manages to get Olympic’s wheel over hard to his right when Hawke struck.
(This comes from trial transcripts.)
Long time ago now, Rob, but I think it was about 45 days. Can you remember the names of the barges?.
