A port-of-call for those interested in some original Titanic research and analytical work, a
detailed analysis of the collision between
Andrea Doria and Stockholm, the evolution of
America's Cup racing yachts, and a little more.
A little photo art -- The picture above, called "On the Open Sea," was created from a photograph of the Titanic taken in Southamption waters which was then  superimposed on a
separate photograph of the open sea and sky of the North Atlantic and then colorized. What is created is a photographic scene of how
Titanic would have looked out on the open sea in
April of 1912.
Warning! There are no unsinkable theories.

Sailing on Raritan Bay
Many a happy summer in the 1980s was spent cruising
on the Raritan Bay south of Staten Island in a Catalina
25; a full-hull shaped sailboat with a swing keel, a
horizontal skeg aft and a low-swept trunk cabin. It was
then that I got to be called "Commander Sam" by the
vessel's owner since I spent most of my time at the helm
sailing the vessel while he was enjoying his cigar and a
cold beer.
