Unsinkable Vessel Promised

Post by Karen on Tue 15 May 2012 - 20:03

"Unsinkable" Vessel Promised.

It is claimed for the new 50,000 ton vessel, which is being built for the White Star Line in place of the unfortunate Titanic, that the problem of absolute safety has now been solved. Recent experiences have taught valuable lessons in two important respects. Increased protection is to be given against the effects of collision, more and higher water-tight bulkheads will be constructed; and a complete inner skin, extending to a considerable height above the load-line, will be introduced. It is believed that these additions will render the ship safe against all conceivable contingencies.
