why was the titanic travelling at high speed & why did the captain did what the Californian did, stop engines & drop anchor untill day before proceeding on her way. as for the lifeboats, why did Ismay cancelled out the 40 Lifeboats for just 20 ?
its worth a listen. not great, not bad. try it if u like Titanic! enjoy. i did.
