Thank you Dan! That information is definately a start! I did a Google search tonight for Titanic's life jackets/life belts and it didn't turn up much of anything. I'm more relying on people like you, who keep notes on this kind of stuff to help me through. I just thought about this idea tonight when I was looking at a life jacket for $2,000 or so on ebay. Why not just make one? Doesn't look hard at all. Just getting the specifications down is the toughie. Well, and I've never done needle work before, and this will definately require some of that. Hmm, this is going to be a challenge.

And YES Dan, I have to agree 100% with you on ANTR's life jackets. They are far more like what I've seen in the photographs of survivors arriving in New York. Cameron's weren't thick enough in the corking. Where would I have to go to find corking in squares like that? Do hobby places sell cork in "bulk" like that?

Thank you for those measurements though. That's a big help and a big question out of the way already! Now all I need to find out is the fabric used and the measurements of the cork squares. I think I'm going to have fun with this little project. Might grey a few hairs, but it'll be fun.

Thanks again Dan! Would you please let me know if you find anything else? I wonder if and when I get this finished, if RMSTMRA will let me post pics of it here somewhere.

Matt.
