I defintely have a comment about the Titanic. The shipyards which built her, Harland and Wolff in Belfast also built 1740 other boats which never had any problems at all. The last one was the Canberra which was launched in 1965 and scrapped in the 1990"s. There was nothing wrong with the ship yards.But they ran out of orders.x
