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 :).


I used to wonder about this too. However, although they were in an icefield, it seems that the ice was quite a bit away from them (other than the berg that damaged the ship), or at least out of sight in the dark night.

It begs to question, did many people really know they were surrounded by ice until the morning time? I think I only remember hearing of Officer Pittman describing that he could hear the water lapping up against the icebergs at night, but he could not see them.

And, even if they could find some ice, from what I can gather is that they were not so much into the actual "pack ice" yet. From what Rostson stated, there were something like twenty huge bergs some being over 200 feet tall around the scene when he picked up the lifeboats.

So, it would be interesting to know if there was any ice around that was low enough to the water where people could climb up on it.
