*sigh* this one again, eh? There's been a lot of study on this theory Sandy. Frankly, and no offense intended to you personally, it's a load of crap, probably dreamed up by some hack to sell a poorly researched book or documentary. Tank tests with models have shown Titanic would have lost power due to flooding of the boiler and generator rooms much sooner than she actually did, and that she would have rolled over on her side and sank, probably half an hour sooner than she actually did. This is due to the free surface effect, meaning the more free, unrestrained surface area a given amount of water has, the less stable it is. Compare carrying a 12 oz glass of water to carrying the same amount of water in a 8x10 pan or something of that nature for a practical illustration.
