I came across this video when I was "slacking"  (i.e. not playing my banjo or fiddle) and thought it was pretty interesting.

Interesting video, when I was a cruise ship a few years ago, I wanted to take a tour of the engine room, but they didn’t offer them due to security reasons.

I read a book once about how they built the Titanic.

It was riveting.

i saw a program just the other nite where they were saying a fire in one of the coal bunkers that was burning for days in the titantic weakened the steel and also contributed to the massive gash in the side.

The Belfast Area ship building yard(s)? is amazing. The duoliths, "Sampson and Goliath" are an impressive site, for sure. If I ever get back in the area, though, Scotland will be my priority. Home to much of my ancestry. Brad

I worked at Port Weller Dry Docks as a welder for a year. They took a new ship ("Canadian Pioneer") out into Lake Ontario for a trial run and it vibrated so much they/we had to refit & reinforce the engine room.
