Hi everyone, I'm doing a project concerning why Titanic carried so few boats. An Act called "Merchant Shipping Act 1894" was constantly appeared on the Internet, it looks like this act "applied to ships over 10,000 tons, which were required to have on board 16 lifeboats with a capacity to carry a total of 990 people". But what really confuses me is I didn't find out any section that refer to this regulation (the relative one is section 427 which didn't mentioned the details). So I'm wondering whether you may tell me the specific detail about this act. THX
