Did you watch any of the other vids after this was done ??
Especially the one about a coverup conspiracy ?? There is speculation that White Star switched the ships ID and sank the Olympia because it was severely damaged in a collision.

It has credibility from the fact that the captain had the ship going that fast in a known iceberg field...

Sorry to be so nit picky but this is what I did for a living for many years!
