Ismay looked over the shoulder of the Captain at a chart he was studying. " When do we arrive at Queensland Captain?".
Captain Smith stroked his grey beard. " According to my chart, we should arrive there by noon tomorrow".
Looking at the chart closer, Ismay frowned. " What is this course?".
" This is the course Mr. Boxhall has laid out for us".
" Why!" he spitted out in frustration as he stared at the Fourth Officer.
" It is a safer route and we can watch out better for ice".
" Nonsense" Ismay growled. " It will add a day and I will not allow it".
" What about the ice?".
" If you get any reports of ice" he said as he walked toward the bridge railing. " You bring them directly to me".
