Advanced Titanic: Diving Deeper into the Disastrous Story

Stephen M. Payne / Naval Architect

This advanced Titanic class will focus on various areas of the historic sinking that are rarely discussed in “introductory” explanations, offering more detail and additional Titanic facts and elements not usually explored (often because of time constraints) The talk will include a detailed analysis of how the ship flooded and why she sank in the manner she did, including the final phase where the ship broke in two. It will also incorporate changes made to Titanic’s “sister ships” – Olympic and Britannic – in the light of the disaster and why these measures were ultimately ineffective in preventing Britannic sinking after striking a mine in the Aegean.
