Free US/UK Kindle Classic published
years before the Titanic sank and
predicting its fate!
Perhaps a foreboding overtook them and they set this book aside . . .
From the bridge, engine-room, and a dozen places on her deck the ninety-two doors of nineteen water-tight compartments could be closed in half a minute by turning a lever. These doors would also close automatically in the presence of water. With nine compartments flooded the ship would still float, and as no known accident of the sea could possibly fill this many, the steamship Titan was considered practically unsinkable.
