Titanic II Sinks In Harbor On Maiden Voyage
I can hear it now, a theme song form Celine Dion....or maybe Dion and the Belmonts. Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet standing on the front of the boat....I'm the king of the world. I think I would not buy and not name my boat Titanic, or Bismark, or call it unsinkable. To quote the bird Lago in Aladdin (played by Gilbert Godried) "Oh, there's a big surprise. That's an incred--I think I'm gonna have a heart attack and die from not surprise!" Read this story about the Titanic II...
Most people would think twice before buying a boat named Titanic II. And sure enough, when Briton Mark Wilkinson took the 16-foot (4.8-meter) cabin cruiser out for its maiden voyage, it promptly sank.
"It's all a bit embarrassing and I got pretty fed up with people asking me if I had hit an iceberg."
One eyewitness said:- "It wasn't a very big boat — I think an ice cube could have sunk it!"
