8 out of 10. Got the last two wrong.

Who knew captain Smith had some kind of disaster on two other ships not including the Olympic and Titanic? Am I right about Smith needing to be retrained or was the answer to that question all wrong!?

The Republic / The Coptic.

I answered Olympic.... The so called answer was all of the above.

That "answer," then, is wrong. As we've discussed many times, pilot Bowyer, not Smith, was in charge of Olympic at the time of the Hawke collision. The Coptic grounding which is sometimes erroneously attributed to Smith did not, in fact, involve him; see E. J. Smith, Coptic Aground and Rio---Two out of three ain't bad?. And, to the best of my knowledge, Smith never had a "disaster" of any sort while commanding Republic I.
