So that the necessary repairs could be conducted and plus, it was a common practice in shipyards. A ship's propeller cannot be removed, without placing the ship in drydock. I've already seen that video and am well versed in this ridiculous theory.quote:
why would they have 2 ships docked switching it occasionally when the Olympic only needed a propeller switch that would only take 2 days yet it took a whole week to do so?
See http://titanic-model.com/db/db-02/sh-db-2.html. In short: The propeller work only took one day (March 3rd); but as Olympic was being removed from drydock on the 4th she grounded. They thus had to put her back in the drydock in order to inspect her hull for damage, which was done on the 5th; and Olympic left the drydock the next day.quote:
Why would it take a week to inspect a ship and fix whatever is wrong with it? It shouldn't take long to take a look at a ship fix what is wrong with it and sail it out...at least to my knowledge...
Whaaat? Olympic was damaged by the Hawke in her stern; the fatal damage to Titanic was in her bow.quote:
and if you were to take a look at where the Olympic and Hawk has crashed it is obvious that it was in the same exact place that the Titanic crashed the iceberg
