We're from a school and we were asked to (by an American writer) build a real-size model of the Collapsible D Lifeboat on board of Titanic. We would love to share this experience with you and would love to get some help from you. If you have any ideas of what the Collapsible D lifeboats looked like (plans) with quantitative data (measurements). Even if you have any interesting stories about the lifeboat, please tell us, even a little bit of information will help us. Thank you!!!

I smell something fishy. What "American author" would commission students who know nothing about an Engelhardt collapsible to build a full size recreation? The National Maritime Museum in Cornwall is gong to do the same thing only with expert boat builders. I think this is a scam where somebody is trying to get some plans for free. Color me skeptical.

I am Mark Trumpold who teaches at an International school in Beijing. My student is asking serious questions, as this is a legitimate project that our school is undertaking with the author. He wants to test ideas to write about. Our school often undertakes projects ranging from community service to things like this. We like to do 'real-world' projects.
It would be great if you guys could help the students out in some way.
