E Deck

The E Deck is the 6th deck from the bottom. Its a lower middle deck, where many crews cabins, mainly concentrated in the Scotland Road, are positioned a long road without any watertight doors at port side of the ship. It started flooding at around 12:30AM, being one of the earlier decks to flood. Its wider than the usual gangways, is uninterrupted and let much water through during the sinking, causing Titanic to list 2 degrees to port side after 1:00 A.M. It's not so easy to find your way there as on the higher decks, since its devided in bulkheads except where Scotland Road lies.

Most of the watertight bulkheads ended at this deck. A few even reached D Deck. The E-deck lies 6-7 metres above the waterline.
