Re: Titanic question.

Forgive me if this has been mentioned, but the Mythbusters did this, and they managed to get both Adam and Jamie onto a replica prop of the board used in the movie. They had a bit of trouble until the realised that they had to put the life jacket under the board to make it more bouyant. Once they did that, they both survived happily.

Without the advantage of hindsight and without the decades of experience these men have had on coming up with out-of-the-box solutions on the fly.

The Mythbusters "proved it could be done" but in reality it would have taken way more time and thinking than Jack and Rose had at the time while in much more harsh conditions than the San Francisco bay even in the coolest of weather.

It's been discussed at length already. Forgiveness denied.
