    no meant two days out she left Southampton on the 10th went to cherbourg and ireland left ireland on the 12th so she was two days out when hit , funny their was warning being given on the 12th of icebergs too .. so well warned but captain smith thought the ship was unsinkable and did not change course .

    Oh.
    Never go on maiden cruises. Had a friend many years ago who purchased a factory new trawler. She took delivery and went on her merry way down the Chesapeake Bay. Somewhere in the middle of the bay, the boat quickly sank. She and her friend were rescued but her dog didn't make it.
    After salvage it was determined that a hose clamp below the waterline had not been properly tightened and the hose separated allowing seawater to flood the vessel.

    thought I would leave that to a usa member to say as always think more in a way Americas history now

    but suppose the people of devon might disagree as in the 50's I am sure a full size replica was built there


    yes it.s in america now


    The replica was built in Devon, England during 1955–1956, in a collaboration between Englishman Warwick Charlton and Plimoth Plantation, an American museum. The work drew upon reconstructed ship blueprints held by the American museum,
