At 9:30 this morning, FOX TV will be exploring in a live broadcast, Ray Boston's theory of the fire in Titanic's coal bunker. Former TIS president Bob DiSogra will be on the panel.
I am not sure who else will be commenting or other topics for discussion.

Amazing all the theories.
Coal bunker fire.
Poor quality steel.
Fragile rivets
Expansion joints
Bottom fell out.
Switching ships.
It goes on and on……… but in the end, it sank because it was full of water.

Your absolutely right Steve. What it all really comes down to is a ship striking a nearly immovable object along the starboard side at over 22 knots resulting in documented uncontrollable flooding in the first 5 compartments. That exceeded the floodable design length of the ship. It was doomed within the first 7 seconds.

And we've been saying as much for years now. Overall, a remarkable sequence of cause and effect, isn't it?

(Wonderful place the universe, I wouldn't live anywhere else!)
