Time difference


I would like to point out first, that i don't want to this thread became another fight whether time was adjusted or not.

I just want someone to confirm or improve my way of thinking.

The most known version of disaster is as follows:

11:40 - collision
00:00 - preparing lifeboats begins
00:45 - first lifeboat lowered
02:20 - foundering


If the clock change was made before the collision, the time difference between collision and first boat is 42 minutes? If it true, what about the stories of the survivors who said that the first boat was lunched about an hour after collision?


The argument is that there is other evidence to suggest a sooner life boat launch time. There are many conflicting times within testimony it just a matter of which fits which version better. Every thing in the adjusted time happens 20 odd minutes sooner.
