In response to In response to 18


          

Hey Kent,

Thanks for your comments, there is certainly something you can do. But more importantly, is there anything the TRMA as an organisation could do? I say this for the following reason :-

Given that Nomadic is the only surviving ship of the White Star Line and that she is directly linked to Titanic and her brief story, I have always been surprised why so many Titanic groups/organisations/societies the world over aren't breaking their backs by bending over backwards to help? Some groups aren't even interested in her - as crazy as this sounds. Nomadic has the most unbelievable potential to be the premier Titanic attraction in the world - IF done correctly. And this is why catapulting her to global awareness amongst all groups etc really is so important.

Therefore, would the TRMA be interested in creating a section on this website solely for Nomadic and her plight? Because even though she has been 'saved', a new fight to save her from a humiliating existence is just about to start. And we are going to need as much exposure as possible, locally as well as internationally.

Why are we doing this you may ask? Well, Mervyn's hypothetical discussion is as close to the truth as you could get. A government dept. and a trust controlled by totally dis-interested people in Titanic are the ship's supposed saviours. Seeming that the majority of the funds raised for her 'restoration' will come from public money, the government are more interested in contemporary obsessions and political correctness than actual restoration. For example, the ship's engine room is most likely going to be rebuilt as a children's theatre according to her current owners. In other words, the ship is going be restored as a Nomadic shaped multi use venue to satisfy government criteria. I think that sums up what they think of it all - and why we must do all we can to oppose this and create a tide of support that we hope will wash these people aside in favour of this ship being managed by true passionate and enthusiatic folk.

So, our closing question for you, what are you willing to do to help?

Roo.
