Easy one to ask as it says mostly it all in the title.

With the polar ice melting, and the Icebergs moving, does this mean the chances of a Titanic collision is now greater??

Leaving apart SONAR etc

collisions maybe but sinkings no since ships are more maneuverable now and built with compartments that work as intended

Double skinned hull are now common place . . most you'll do is flood a wing or bottom tank, either causing a bit of a tilt or you might rupture a fuel tank . .

Training and technology is better now too, so hopefull seen sooner, and course suitably adjusted.


I can talk all day about ships if you guys want. Pleeeese :)

Titanic had a sister ship Olympic that actually was unsinkable. It had been smashing into s**t for a year before Titanic was launched.
