I got the wrong Barbara, I'm afraid. Maybe because yesterday's

Having recently read Down to the Sea in Ships by Horatio Clare my

One of my favourite verses from Twas on the good ship Venus was

The Bosun's name was Carter
By God he was a farter
When the wind didn't blow
And the ship wouldn't go
Carter the farter would start 'er.

much range - but were jolly useful whenever the winds were contrary.

Some of them were so capacious in the coal storage department that they
could have a fire raging in a few of the 20 or more coal holes / boilers
that they could carry on traversing the Atlantic with many passengers being
total oblivious to the ticking time bomb they were sailing in…

I've found what appears to be the record, from
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Sirius_(1837)> - as usual, there's a
grain of truth but much exaggeration:

Sirius, the largest of the St George company's steamers, was designed
for their prestige Cork-London service, on which she began in August
1837.

At the time Sirius was completed, two other companies were building
steamships for proposed transatlantic passenger services. British and
American's British Queen fell behind when the firm building her engines
went bankrupt. Construction on the rival Great Western continued without
interruption and she was ready for her first voyage by April 1838. One
of British and American's directors suggested the company charter Sirius
to beat Great Western. Overloaded with coal and with 45 passengers,
Sirius left Cork, Ireland on 4 April and arrived in New York after a
voyage of 18 days, 4 hours and 22 minutes (8.03) knots. The normal
westbound passage by sailing packet was 40 days. When coal ran low, the
crew were alleged by the newspapers to have been forced to burn cabin
furniture, spare yards and one mast, inspiring the similar sequence in
Jules Verne's Around the World in Eighty Days. However, in reality the
crew were able to manage and conserve the stocks of coal by burning four
barrels of resin instead, and still had 15 tons of coal left on arrival
in New York. Great Western departed Avonmouth four days after Sirius and
still came within a day of overtaking her. Because Sirius was clearly
too small for the Cork-New York crossing, she completed only one
additional round trip before she was returned to her owners and, after a
voyage to Saint Petersburg, resumed her regular St George company
service, though on the Cork-Glasgow route.

So Sirius held the record (which was based on average speed, not time,
because different ships took different routes) - for about a day; Great
Western started four days after Sirius, but arrived only one day after
her. And they didn't burn parts of the ship, only some barrels of resin
(the article doesn't say where those came from - I'm guessing cargo or
ship's supplies).

IIRR, Titanic set off with a fire in one of its coal bunkers, and as you
say this wasn't considered noteworthy. (Though I think some of the many
prog.s about it have hinted that they think it may have buckled or
otherwise stressed plates, contributing to its demise.)
