ChangesВ inВ TheВ OceanВ

ThereВ wasВ oneВ fictionalВ storyВ writtenВ byВ MorganВ RobertsonВ called ​ TheВ WreckВ ofВ TheВ

Titan​

. В Robertson'sВ bookВ wasВ aboutВ anВ unsinkableВ passengerВ linerВ thatВ sankВ whileВ carryingВ theВ twoВ thousandВ people. В WhatВ isВ soВ fascinatingВ andВ unbelievableВ aboutВ thisВ bookВ isВ thatВ itВ wasВ createdВ inВ 1898В whileВ theВ actualВ eventВ ofВ theВ RMSВ TitanicВ happenedВ inВ 1912. В EvenВ thoughВ theВ bookВ isВ saidВ toВ beВ fictitious, В theВ eventsВ inВ theВ storyВ areВ parallelВ toВ theВ eventsВ ofВ theВ realВ Titanic. В BothВ shipsВ wereВ builtВ toВ beВ unsinkable. В BothВ shipsВ sankВ afterВ strikingВ anВ iceberg. В BothВ shipsВ wereВ onВ theirВ maidenВ voyage. В TheВ mostВ wellВ toВ doВ famousВ peopleВ wereВ onВ theВ TitanВ andВ Titanic. В OnlyВ oneВ thirdВ ofВ theВ passengersВ onВ eachВ shipВ survived. В BothВ ships В hadВ anВ inadequateВ numberВ ofВ lifeboats. В BothВ shipsВ wereВ encouragedВ toВ breakВ speedВ recordsВ duringВ theirВ voyage(RedВ IceВ Creation). В TheВ TitanicВ wasВ exploring В atВ aboutВ 23В milesВ perВ hourВ whenВ sheВ struckВ theВ iceberg. В InВ lessВ thanВ 10В secondsВ herВ hullВ wasВ rippedВ openedВ belowВ theВ waterlineВ onВ theВ starboardВ (rightВ hand)В sideВ forВ aВ lengthВ ofВ 300В feet. В WithinВ 10В minutesВ theВ ship'sВ fiveВ forwardВ compartmentsВ wereВ floodedВ 14В feetВ aboveВ theВ keel(TheВ DiscoveryВ ofВ TheВ Titanic, В 23). В OverВ aВ centuryВ hasВ sailedВ byВ sinceВ theВ luxuriousВ ship, В RMSВ TitanicВ sankВ atВ theВ endВ ofВ theВ NorthВ AtlanticВ ocean. В MoreВ thanВ 1500В peopleВ lostВ theirВ livesВ andВ fewВ hundredВ luckilyВ survived(EncyclopediaВ Titanica). В ThisВ storyВ hasВ fascinatedВ millionsВ andВ millionsВ ofВ peopleВ aroundВ theВ worldВ upВ toВ todayВ becauseВ itВ madeВ aВ huge В

effect. В ForВ decades, В peopleВ haveВ wondered, В ifВ theВ TitanicВ wasВ saidВ toВ beВ theВ " unsinkable” ship, В whyВ didВ itВ kitchen sink? В WhatВ wentВ wrong? В WhoseВ faultВ wasВ it? В OverВ theВ courseВ ofВ manyВ decades, В theyВ haveВ gottenВ all their В answerВ using В newВ technologyВ thatВ wasn'tВ availableВ duringВ 1912. В SoВ inВ order В toВ fixВ thisВ problemВ toВ insureВ itВ won'tВ happenВ again, В changesВ hadВ toВ beВ manufactured. В 3В waysВ thatВ changedВ afterВ theВ sinkingВ wasВ theВ maritimeВ lawsВ ofВ havingВ enoughВ lifeboatsВ forВ everyВ passenger, В 24В hourВ the airwaves, В andВ internationalВ iceВ В patrol. В

FirstВ thingВ thatВ changedВ wasВ theВ lifeboats. В TheВ BritishВ committee​ sВ planВ forВ revisingВ

lifeboat regulations were much more detailed.  Lifeboat accommodation on passenger ships would be based on the projected number of passengers to be carried,  rather than tonnage,  and such accommodations would be considered independently of the subdivision of the ship into watertight components(Encyclopedia Titanica).  In special cases where the Board of Trade believed the provision of  lifeboats for all on board to be improper,  requirements would be altered accordingly(Encyclopedia Titanica).  This involved changing the sizes and types of lifeboats on board,  changing the manners of stowing them,  or setting aside an entire deck  to the  storage of lifeboats and the drilling of the crew(Titanic: An Illustrated History,  63).  All lifeboats would be fitted with a ​

protective fender​

В 

or bumper,  to prevent damage when being decreased.  In addition,  the panel  proposed that the Board of Trade be empowered to require that one or more lifeboats be fitted with ​

some form of mechanical propulsion ​

i. e. В anВ engine(Titanic: AnВ

IllustratedВ Background, В 64). В AllВ lifeboatsВ wouldВ beВ onВ boardВ beforeВ anyВ shipВ commencedВ aВ voyage, В andВ beВ equippedВ withВ lamps В andВ pyrotechnicsВ forВ signaling, В asВ wellВ asВ compassesВ andВ provisionsНѕВ theyВ wouldВ alsoВ beВ markedВ toВ easilyВ indicateВ theВ maximumВ capacityВ ofВ adultВ individualsВ...
