With regard to concerns over stability and bringing the Ship down near her correct waterline that is being addressed by taking on water ballast in tanks . Sheer is being represented both in some structure alterations and paint lines . Concerning displays in poor taste to the memories of those Loved and lost in the Titanic disaster Bruce has discussed this with the Chinese and so far they have given positive feedback to him on this issue. This is not being built to be some cheap carnival side show in poor taste . The Owners have started a charitable organisation called " The Titanic Foundation " intended to aid those involved in accidents at sea . I would suggest that having Bruce as the Number 1 technical advisor on this project is the best choice for the job as he not only has the technical knowledge to do the job but the sensability to advise the owners regarding Western culture and concerns. Again as Bruce has stated due to fire regulation etc. Titanic 2 cannot be a rivet for rivet room for room pipe for pipe wire for wire duplicate of the original , however for the first time in 100 plus years this will give the public the opportunity to walk the decks and see in full form an Olympic Class Liner as built. I for one am excited over the chance to experience an Edwardian Liner how about You ?
