It was really kind of haunting to hear it in person.

Hey Gents! Been awhile since I posted. Sorry for the absence. The Job and family etc have had me run ragged. Anyway, as you all know I "walk away" from my Christine project to keep from getting burned out. Work will continue this fall and winter and I'll post pictures when the time comes. In the meantime I've decided to resurrect this project from years ago. I'm starting with the water tight doors indicator panel. I'll post a few pics here soon if anybody cares! LOL

Neat, look forward to more pics! I'm amazed by the quality of the antique components you find Wayne.

Looks like we have another Titanic junky! Smile I honestly am fascinated with the Titanic and think its one of the most beautiful looking ships ever built. Nowadays ships don't look elegant or stylish. Ships of today look like floating skyscrapers. No style in my eyes. Keep it up Wayne I love things like this!

Thanks guys.

Chris, you just have to use your imagination to bring something like this together. Just about everything can be had on ebay and researching the names of the components helps. Add "Antique BRASS" to your ebay search and your guaranteed results.

Cool Brian! Didn't know you were a fellow junkie. My idea takes design queues mainly and will be far from exact. I'm after a functional "shock and awe" kind of effect. Still trying to convince the wife to let me do this in the dining room so we'll see what happens! LOL.

Glad you like it Joe. I'll post some pics soon. Wink

Very cool Wayne! Back in college we did a study on the Titanic's water tight doors and why the ship faltered. Our results were quite shocking. And we had various results. Its been long contested that the ships steel was weak and the rivets weren't ideal. But heres the kicker.. Even if the ships steel was better and the ship was welded over riveting it wouldn't have mattered. The bottom line is the water tight doors weren't sealed. And the shear weight of the water being held by these compartments tore the guts out of her and caused the most damage to the sinking of the ship. Once the weight from the water pulled her down at the bow the sheer weight and stress the ship went under was horrendous. When we were done with our study we were all shocked to find out one thing. That there was a good possibility that the ship could have stayed afloat longer with the doors open. And really may not have sank at all. I know many have heard of these theories but honestly there are several factors that make one think. Two eye witnesses which were coal stokers really shed some light on our theories. And really makes one wonder that what if!!! At the end of the day I look at it like this.. The iceberg did the damage.. But it didn't sink the ship.. Really the ship had one foot in the grave and another on a banana peal before she even hit the iceberg.

True Brian. I often wondered what would have happened if the doors were left open and the water was allowed to evenly travel to all compartments. Why? The pumps from those other compartments would have contributed to pumping out the ship. Could they have gotten ahead of the incoming water if they were all in use? I wonder... In theory that would have been 10 more pumps in use rather than just 3 or 4.

That is correct Wayne. The ship had 8 large pumps that were plumed into the ship. And they also had a few portable pumps used for minor clean up. Just to put it in prospective the 8 large pumps all together pumped 1700 tons per hour. Of course as long as they had steam. That's a lot of water. The two surviving stokers clearly stated that they were getting ahead of the water. As they moved forward with the portable pumps cleaning up excess water about 20 minutes after they were over come by water from behind. And why do you ask? Well the stress from all the weight from the water in the forward compartments had started to take its toll. The ship started to fracture. So if the water tight compartments were left open then the water could have dispersed evenly through out the ship and would have never put it under such horrendous stress and the pumps could have done there job.. One has to remember the damage by the iceberg really wasn't like a large gapping hole.. But a mere slice here and there a long side of the ship. The thing is sink or not the ship would have stayed afloat much longer and at the very least it could have saved more lives. And loading lifeboats when a ship is more level is much easier then when its listing. But I do clearly believe the ship would have stayed afloat and there would have never been such a tragic story of the sinking and loss of life. This is a clear example of humans not understanding technology. And even the white star line claimed the ship was built to strong to have broken apart.. Well guess what.. they were wrong. This ship sank from not understanding technology and human error. The sad part is the human error occurred with keeping the water tight doors closed. And that set the fate of the ship... Such a shame..

It is very interesting Joe. A lot of these statements were concealed by the white star line in fear that they didn't want the word to get out that they made weak ships. But the fact is that they really never had nothing to hide. No ship could with stand those type of stresses. There just pure unfathomable..
