Titanic: How It Really Sank
Emmett Jordan | Milwaukee, WI United States | 04/21/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Based on my sources, there seems to be an error in the "Titanic:
How It Really Sank" documentary.
The commentator claims that there was an earlier iceberg
colision by the SS Arizona in 1879, but neglects the iceberg
colision of the Kronprinz Wilhelm on July 8, 1907.
What type of rivets did the Kronprinz Wilhelm use?
Since the Kronprinz Wilhelm stayed afloat, it would seem
that it had a much better hull and/or rivets.
The often criticized old Gaelic "ceardan" (Jordans) iron
smiths, would have done better from their rich ore deposits."

"Superb documentary! I literally gasped in surprise a couple times while watching this. There is so much mystery involving the Titanic and how it sank and for so many years, I have assumed it simply hit an iceburg. How wrong! According to this documentary, the Titanic's demise was the fault of many people. What interested me the most (being a sheet metal mechanic) was the iron grade three rivets and how the weekness holding the steel could not take the impact of the iceburg. To think this all could have been avoided had the proper rivets been used! Mind boggling.

Also, the documentary talks about the lack of life boats. Sixteen for 1300 passengers and 700 workers. Another issue was communication. Yet another issue was the way the ship hit the iceburg. There is much more to the story, but one will have to watch it for themselves. Truly fascinating."
