Andrews:
[Andrews is looking at the ship's blueprints as he describes the damage to the Captain]
Here's the position: we have water in the forepeak; numbers 1 and 2 holds; the mailroom; and boiler rooms 6 and 5. That means a gash 300 feet long, from there to there...
[indicates gash with a pencil on the blueprint]

Andrews:
Below the waterline. Do you agree?
Captain Edward J. Smith:
Yes. Well?
Andrews:
The pumps are keeping the water down in this boiler room, Number 5, but the first five compartments are flooding.
Captain Edward J. Smith:
Well, what's the answer?
Andrews:
She's going to sink, Captain.
Captain Edward J. Smith:
But... She can't sink. She's unsinkable.
Andrews:
She can't float. Look... she can float with any three of her first five compartments flooded. She could even float with four of them gone. But she can't float with ALL of the first five full up.
Captain Edward J. Smith:
Yes, but...
Andrews:
[cuts him off]
These watertight bulkheads here only go as high as E Deck. The weight of the water in the bow is going to pull her down by the head. So, you're going to get the fifth compartment overflowing into the sixth... the sixth into the seventh... and so on, as she gets lower. It's a mathematical certainty. With that amount of underwater damage she can't stay afloat.
Captain Edward J. Smith:
How long will she last?
Andrews:
[starts doing figures on a scratch pad]
Just trying to work that out, now. As far as I can see, she made 14 feet of water in the first ten minutes after the collision. That's not very fast. She should live... another... hour and a half. Yes. About that, I should think.
Captain Edward J. Smith:
There must be no panic.
Andrews:
No.
Captain Edward J. Smith:
You'll be careful of what you say to the passengers.
Andrews:
Of course... How many people are there on board?
Captain Edward J. Smith:
2,200, or more. And room in the boats for...? How many?
Andrews:
1,200.
Captain Edward J. Smith:
I don't think the Board of Trade regulations ever visualized this situation. Do you?

00:00:01.000 --> 00:00:03.752
The weight of water in the bow is going to pull her down by the head
00:00:03.836 --> 00:00:06.463
So you're going to get the fifth watertight compartment overflowing into the sixth
00:00:07.173 --> 00:00:10.999
the sixth into the seventh and so on as she gets lower
00:00:10.176 --> 00:00:12.998
It's a mathematical certainty
00:00:12.999 --> 00:00:14.721
With that amount of underwater damage she can't stay afloat
00:00:17.266 --> 00:00:18.808
How long will she last
00:00:18.893 --> 00:00:20.894
Just trying to work that out now
00:00:22.104 --> 00:00:24.731
As far as I can see she made 14 feet of water
00:00:24.815 --> 00:00:26.858
in the first 10 minutes after the collision
00:00:27.086 --> 00:00:29.486
That's not very fast
00:00:29.057 --> 00:00:31.404
She should live
00:00:31.489 --> 00:00:33.698
another hour and a half
00:00:33.783 --> 00:00:35.045
Yes about that I think
00:00:36.452 --> 00:00:38.119
There must be no panic
00:00:38.204 --> 00:00:39.955
No
00:00:40.001 --> 00:00:41.957
You'll be careful what you say to the passengers
00:00:42.997 --> 00:00:44.000
Of course
00:00:44.001 --> 00:00:46.628
How many people are there on board
00:00:46.712 --> 00:00:48.797
Twenty two hundred or more
00:00:48.881 --> 00:00:51.979
And room in the boats for
00:00:52.176 --> 00:00:53.677
how many
00:00:54.887 --> 00:00:56.513
Twelve hundred
00:00:59.308 --> 00:01:03.311
I don't think the Board of Trade regulations visualized this situation
00:01:04.999 --> 00:01:06.999
Do you
