"Plus the 5 needed to man the boat (that is far to few for a rescue effort) in each boat that is 30 men"... Where does number "5" come from? I'm trying to find a regulation document stating the number of crewmen required/allowed on each lifeboat in case of a wreck. Can't find anything in Mersey's report nor in the Merchant Shipment act of 1894. Does anyone have the answer? Thanks a lot!

Cpt. Smith obviously was at fault. The fact that Cpt. Lord and the officers that spotted the rockets did nothing was also their fault. The Carpathia ran the same risk but tried a rescue anyway.

To those defending Lord by saying he was thinking of the safety of his own crew. Sure, that's why he couldn't even be bothered to contact the "mystery" ship and ask what was wrong...

WRITTEN BY LORDITES. Isn't it funny...Captain Rostron hauled ass through the dangerous ice field to make a rescue. Lordites try to get away from those white rockets, but they can't, so they create this BUNK. Just like JFK assassination NUTS think Oswald was the wrong man. LORDITES GO HOME. Find another conspiracy theory to push your BUNK.

Could the crew from both ships have worked together on that ill fated night ? For instance , having a plan in place over wireless before getting to the titanic . Such as row all the boats with survivors at a safe distance away from the titanic. And the SSC pick up survivors from this location and launch lifeboats of the ship Simultaneously. And both crews row back in the life boats for more passengers. How many crew members were on the Titanic?
