From: Keith Bostic

When anyone asks me how I can best describe my experience in nearly forty
years at sea, I merely say, uneventful.  Of course there have been winter
gales, and storms and fog and the like.  But in all my experience, I have
never been in any accident...  or any sort worth speaking about.  I have
seen but one vessel in distress in all my years at sea.  I never saw a
wreck and never have been wrecked nor was I ever in any predicament that
threatened to end in disaster of any sort.
                -- E.J. Smith, Captain, RMS Titanic, 1907
