Some facts about the RMS Carphatia, for those of you who do not already know about it:
Height: 170 meters
Width: 19.5 meters
Weight (without load): 13 555 tonnes
Engine type: Ångkvadrupellmotorer, ruled the two propellers
Normal speed: 13, 5 knots, but she came up in 17 knots when she was on the "rescue mission."
Number of passengers: 1720
Builders: Wallsend Shipyard of C. S. Swan and Hunter Ltd.

The keel was laid on September 10th 1901 at the shipyard in Liverpool, she was launched on August 6 year 1902nd
There were only cabins for the second-and third-class passengers. So there was not first class. Instead, they had invested in shipping of refrigerated food. In second grade, there was room for about 200 passengers, in the third grade, there was space for about 1,500 passengers.
Virgin journey started May 5 in 1903. Actually, it would have started earlier, but because of the strike so got it done later.
Until April 15, she was never so especially famous, because she ended up in the shadow of the larger vessels RMS Lusitania
and RMS Mauretania.
Total took two and a half hours Carphatia to fall, three torpedoes met her.
The wreckage was found on September 9 1999, and it is located at the coordinates 49 28 N 19. 46 W. The wreck lies at the depth of 150 meters, and should be very well preserved, even the chimney is still standing in place.

It took the almost equal time for Carpathia to sink it took Titanic also.

I think we should focus on exploring the wreck of the Carpathia little more, if she is so well preserved with chimney and everything!

What do you think about that?
