Re: FAVOURITE


I don't really have any other favourite ships as such, but I have a fascination with shipwrecks. If I had to choose which shipwreck other than Titanic, that interests me, I would say the Andrea Doria.

After reading A Night To Remember, I began looking for other books about disasters, and I found a book on the Andrea Doria.

Re: FAVOURITE


Hmm, let's see. Besides Titanic, Britannic, and Olympic I would have to say that my favorite ship is really a fishing vessel called the Andrea Gail. There was a book and a movie about it called "The Perfect Storm". I have been studying and researching information on it and find it really fascinating.

Re: FAVOURITE


Since reading about it in a book I have, I think the Empress of Ireland is pretty interesting too. Early in the morning of May 29th 1914, a Norwegian coal ship called the "Storstad" rammed the Empress of Ireland in the thick fog. It took the Empress only 14 minutes to sink with a terrible loss of life. She lies only 130 feet below the surface of the St Lawrence River east of Quebec City. Of the 1,477 on board, 1,012 died. 840 of them being passengers. Very sad disaster. Most of the people on board were asleep and didn't even know what had happened.


**These facts came from "Ghost Liners: Exploring the Worlds Greatest Lost Ships" by Dr. Robert Ballard**

Don't know if boats qualify, but there is a lovely little yacht moored at Ramsgate named SUNDOWNER and she unquestionably wins MY [sign in to see URL] for reasons Graham will understand only too well.
