Captain Noah and His Unsinkable Ship
Ken D. Trivette
Genesis 6-7

1. The most famous ship that ever sailed was the H.M.S. Titanic. In her day, she was a state of the art Ocean liner, 882.5 ft long; her beam 92.5 ft, and 60.5 ft from water line to boat deck. She consisted of 9 decks. She was designed to remain afloat with any 2 compartments flooded, possibly three.

She could carry 329 passenger's first class, 285 passengers 2nd class, and 710 passengers 3rd class. On her maiden voyage across the Atlantic, she carried 2227 on board.

[6] And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.''
