How many people have got to see the History Channel Documentary, "Titanic, the Final Pieces". I got to see it about six weeks ago and I found it really a mind-blower. To actually get to see part of her double bottom and keel--with the paint still attached! What I found amazing is that there is still anti-fouling paint on the keel and double bottom and that the overall condition of the two pieces is better than that of the main secti9ons.

So, who has seen this documentary and what do you think of it?

History Channel Documentary just shot a big question mark in the grounding theory of the Titanic with the actual bilge keel showing no visible signs of iceberg damage across the entire main beam section of either side! Since the bilge keels would have been bent or peeled back if the Titanic slip up on the submerged portion of the berg to receive any damage then you need to reevaluate this theory. I have seen actual photographs of several bergs that have no underwater shelfs on one side or the other. So I still return to the damage to side panels as the failing element of the design.

This iceberg is a good example of a berg that has very little submerged extentions on a specific side. It's easy to see how a ship can strike the side of the berg and not have to drag her bottom up on a submerged section or shelf of the berg. We will never know much about the actual bergs structure. There are many photos of suspected bergs responcible for Titanic's damage but they are unproven.
