The RMS Titanic’s lifeboat model will surely bring back the memory of the most tragic sea disasters in modern history. Lifeboat 7 was a wooden starboard lifeboat and the first one to be lowered from the sinking Titanic. Although there was a capacity of 65 people, it left with only 28 people on board, thus with 37 empty seats. The reason why was that many women and children were reluctant to enter a small wooden lifeboat and preferred to stay on the massive “unsinkable”, but sinking, Titanic.
