Lacking lifeboat capacity was by choice

It is generally omitted that the ship was constructed to carry 64 wooden lifeboats, four for each of its 16 davits, for a total capacity of 4000. It is being omitted that the operator of the ship had decided to carry only 16 lifeboats, plus for collapsible boats with canvas sides, instead of the 64 it was designed to carry. The lacking lifeboat capacity was therefore by choice, not by design.



Also, a disproportionate number of the men aboard the Titanic went down with the ship, as women and children were given priority. Some people are now suggesting that this too was so for an evident reason.
