Thanks for your question, I disprove of exploitation of the wreck for profit, which in effect means I disagree with the salvage operations. If some items could have been brought up and preserved purely in memory of those who died, I would have had no objection, but the wreck has been plundered (and damaged) on a large scale by people who have no empathy with the disaster. It is a mass grave site and should of course be treated with great respect. Ballard (Robert Ballard is the discoverer of the wreck for those who dont know) is certainly very sad about how things have turned out.

I wholeheartedly agree. Thanks.

I shared earlier my interest in collecting straight razor, and just wanted to share probably my best find to date. Which funny enough came from a militaria show.
Plus, I'm starting to get into film making

I`m guessing you`ve been to Belfast to the Titanic visitor centre?

Actually no. I did a Titanic visit to Belfast about ten years ago but have not yet seen the new centre. I'm sure I will get there is the next few years.
