Sorry if somebody had already done this question, but I would like to know where was the water at 0.45? Have it already reached boiler room No4? And at what time did the water start to enter into the Dining Saloon? I think you'll help me in this issue.

Best regards, João

I know from Colonel Gracie's biography that a short time after midnight water started pooring in the squash court. I suppose that by 0.30 the turkish baths were partially flooded. Many third class passengers reported they saw water entering their rooms little after 0.15 and a lot of seamen stated that the icy waters flooded their quarters by 0.20. Can anybody help me with the previous questions?

João: The best I can do right now is to direct you to the British Inquiry Report here: http://www.titanicinquiry.org/BOTInq/BOTReport/BOTRep01.html. Then go to the links under

You may find what you are looking for there.

It may be a stupid question or commentary, but when the water started pouring on the A-deck cabins, were there any first class passengers? Well, supposing that the windows did not break, so how the water reached them? By the Grand Staircase flooding?

Regards, João

Unless somebody deliberately chose to stay down below decks, by this point in time most if not all of the 1st cabin was well out of there. It's not as if there was any real point in remaining there.

Not that there were a lot of other options...

I remember reading in Walter Lords "A Night to remember":
At 0.45. A.M. the turkish bath was dry, but shortly later, the water reached also this area.

I remember, somebody reached this area at 0.45. and noticed water streaming a little from e-deck (scotland road) the staircase down to turkish bath.
So i guess, at 0.45.A.M., water just reached the e-deck area above the turkish bath.

Hi Manuel. The person was Steward Joseph Wheat. The time seems to fit the situation quite well. About 0:45 the ship was down by the head between 3 to 4 degrees. The water would have been finding its way aft on deck E there being no watertight bulkheads to block it in that part of the ship. On deck F below, the water would have been held back by bulkhead F just forward of the Turkish bath space.

Trevor:
Thank you for the complement. All I did was make drawings to illustrate what people said they saw and when they claimed to have seen it. I'm now using information from it to look into the calculations of flooding rate.
