Hi Titanica

The Arabic 1, was built around 1881, I think she was sold to the Holland America line around 10 years later, there she was re-named but cannot say at the moment to what.

The arabic 2 built about 1902/3 she was sunk by torpedo off the coast of Ireland with a loss of lives around 40 or 50 again not sure but it was in the first war so around 1914 / 1915

The arabic 3 was built around 1908-1909 White star acquired her around 1930 and scrapped her the year after purchase.

Hope that helps should be able to find out more when I can dig it out. The dates are from the top of my head so may not be accurate

Regards
Graham

ok here is some info on arabic 2

she was laid down as atlantic transport line's
Minnewaska. however during construction jp morgan bought it and white star line.
her maiden voyage was on 26th 1903.
it was from l'pool to new york.

she was unlike most white star liners
still used as a commercial ship.
she was on another voyage .
on august 19th, 1915 she was hit with a torpedo without warning. she sank off old head of kinsale, ireland.
it only took 15 min. to sink.
44 people died and 390 were saved.

hope this helps even though it is a bit late.

Hi Titanica

Both and a lot of years work.

The Internet has some really good sites. You could always start as I used to do at the ship list, don't now the url of hand but if you type ship list into google it more than likely will come up first. It is a really good site covering all sorts

Then if you are into tall ships there is the "tall ship list" again not sure of the url.

Hoe this helps you get started but be warned, if you go to the ships list you may be stuck there for hours.

Regards
Graham

hi titanica,
yeah the internet is a great place to start ..... however it is not by far the only way to get information.
try your local library.... perhaps documentaries. and yes as graham said years of research.

Hi Titanica

Wills hit on a really good point there, do you get things like the history channel, national geographic, or discovery channel. These have great sources of documentaries on most days and especially weekend. Last week alone I watched two documentaries on the Kursk, That's the Russian sub that sank. One on the Titanic, that has been played over and over again but you never know something the next time round might stand out. and various other ship wrecks too numerous to mention. And no I am not a couch potato in case anyone thinks this just like documentaries on ships as it is part of my work.

Regards
Graham
