#54837, "RE: Replica titanic under construction - ANSWERS" In response to In response to 11
Thanks for all the information Bruce!
I've been following this project for quite a while and information that is specific is very hard to come by. That being said, I have a major question in terms of general stability of the vessel. If they are indeed recreating the engine room (i have seen information that suggests that they are) and boiler room 1. How will you guys compensate weight distribution, along with the ship sitting high in the water if that is all the engineering spaces that are being created?
A note on the sheer line, since the strake plates are dumbies then isn't it possible to tease the appearance of a sheer line using them. Obviously it couldn't be exact, however, it would appear more accurate.
On my personal feelings I share most peoples views as i'm skeptical of the project being faithful to the time period and the collision simulation should not be included for the sake of the men women and children that lost their lives.
