One thing to consider is the amount of time you use to load the boats the way you want to.

People always argue about "if only she had enough lifeboats", well, the fact of the matter is that she sank before she could launch all of boats she did have!

Also, It took Titanic 2 hours and 40 minutes to sink. But it took and hour and five minutes of that time to asess the damage, give the orders, uncover the boats, and swing them out and lower them to the level of the deck (The first boat to leave (#7), did not leave till 12:45).


Maybe if they didnt fanny about for so long that wouldnt be so much of an issue. Tell you what I would do though, ferry people over to the ice berg's and then get the boats to return. Contrast to the film, there wasnt just ONE big berg in the middle of the sea, there would of been others, and 'floating ice'. Yea you would be cold, but theres plenty fabric material for you onboard the ship that could of went with you. Boats return, ferry more over, and the rest can sit in the boats, and hey presto, people saved :).

Despite that, I doubt presented with such a situation and in the spur of the moment, I doubt anyone would of thought of that, particuarly since knowone really believed it would sink (which ofcourse explains the delay in the lifeboats being launched and how little full they where to begin with).
