Do you have a source for it?Well we know their last known location was a boat yard in southern Manhattan at the C.M. Lane Lifeboat Company.
The book ''Titanic: Triumph and Tragedy (second edition)'' by Eaton and Haas was the source for this.Do you have a source for it?
The C.M. Lane Life Boat Company inspected the boats which were by end of December 1912 (by that time ships had already additional boat) still at the 2nd floor loft of piers 58 & 59 and it is most likely that they bought the boats.
Depends on how far the distance was and what weather conditions. If it was not a log way down and it would be calm they could use the falls to go down, the safer way would be rope ladders to climb down into the boat.if there's enough time for everyone, how could the last man to leave the ship boarded on lifeboat? they have to lower down the rope manually isnt it? Climbing rope is too far from the sea?
