Does anyone know if large amounts of oil had spilt out of the Titanic after she sank? I recall reading newspaper accounts from passing ships which mentioned oil seen amongst the wreckage. The Californian searched the area. They said - "All we could see there were some boxes and coats and a few empty boats and what looked like oil on the water." Was this oil from the Titanic's oil tanks, and do you believe the Inquiry should have discussed this because the oil tanks were located in the lower decks beside the main engines? Did these oil tanks burst when the ship broke in two, or when the ship imploded, causing the oil to rise to the surface?
