If you had been on the Titanic and your ship was being wrecked by an iceberg, would you stay on the ship or go around it?

    Theory has it now that it was the attempt to go around it that brought them undone.

    Had they held their course and hit the ice head on only the bow would have been damaged and flooded,  by going around they ripped the steal from the hull under the water line and water entered into many compartments and as they filled that brought the bow down under the water and so flooded new compartments

    I was a "damage control man" in the navy and part of the salvage and scuttling crew. If I was on the Titanic then with what I know now- I would have stayed with the ship realizing I was only buying time for those who might be able to get off.

    If it was my choice- (If I have been Captain) I wonder if I too would have tried to set a new speed record and chanced the waters or if I would have taken a safer route. The choice should have been made earlier to use shipping lanes further south when the Captain was told of the danger.

    How are you going to "go around it" if you're on the Titantic?

    Go around it how jackass? It was either stay on the ship or freeze to death in the cold water. Some people have the brains of a gnat!

    The three chaplains on board the Titanic were sitting in the bar when there was a loud crash.

    The rabbi said "We've hit an iceberg and we're sinking!"

    The Anglican priest said "Women and children first!"

    The Catholic priest said "Do you think we have time?"

    they did try to go around the iceberg, but the ship couldn't manuver worth diddly because the propellers were too small for a ship that size. talk about built-in obsolescence!
