The Titanic actually had 16 watertight compartments. The problem was,

1. The compartment bulkheads (walls) were not high enough,

2. They did not have real watertight tops to them.

So, the ship filled up kind of like when you put water in an icecube tray. When one cube square fills with water, the water then spills over the next one.

Well, it was sometime between 21:15-12:45 am when the bulkhead between boiler rooms 5&6 collapsed according to "A Night to Remember" by Walter Lord. Boiler room 5 was the last room known to be damaged (about a 2 foot "gash) past the watertight door theat separated it from Boiler room 6 (foreward) and Boiler room 4 (aft). Funny thing is, when the water reached Boiler room 4 at 1:20, it came up from benaeath the plates in the floor. That's a quite a bit before the "wave" that came near the final plunge.

I'm sorry, I had the wrong boiler room. I was actually refering to boiler room 4, which gave away around 2:10 AM. Charles Pellegrino stated that this is what really started "the final plunge". When this happened, Pellegrino wrote:

"As Titanic's bow plunges under, Scotland Road and other avenues of seepage stop transmitting water aft and send a storm surge forward."

If I may, the time the forward funnel fell. Imagine the listing Titanic was to the water. Those chords holding the funnel would have to be very strong to hold it. My idea is they broke due to the weight not being able to be supported.

Not only did it have sixteen, but I believe that the Olympic class liners were the only one's afloat with that many, and they went up higher than on other vessels as well. At that time, these vessels were the state of the art in safety and design. Only the Titanic's engines were conventional, but they were the state of the art in steam reciprocating engines of the day.
