Did you hear the price they were asking for the model of the boat? I hope it had full bells and whistles for that amount.

Looked like a ship builders model , and they are DEAR , and with the real ship , just think  the BIGGEST scratch built kit EVER  O0  all hand laid fibreglass . . . 
The 131 could cost them dear by offering bespoke design ? the decor tastes of rich people (in this case) are appalling , the marble bathroom was stunning & the owner wanted to change it  %%  AND you DEFINITELY don't want to hear RUNNING WATER on a ship with that 'waterfall' frame , the ship itself is a good design tho' hope it's a success for them.

Don't get me wrong, staying on her was great, and the trip around the ship was really interesting, especially being able to see one of the props in the enclosed tank where the hull had been cut open. Disappointed the Spruce Goose was no longer there..

Also on tv this week so probably re-screened next week. A series of programs on the Atlantic and Pacific undersea warfare of ww2, being shown on Nat Geo channel (sky ch 526) I caught a glimpse of it (not my cup of tea) plenty of film footage, not just historians talking about how things went.

Last week was a 3 part series on the u boats at 3pm , only thing was it was padded out with the same things several times so not as good as it could have been. Also spruce goose was not the largest flying boat built - the princess was, built by Saunders Roe, that even flew a greater distance as well, not just across the bay.

Just intrigued by your comment that it was not what you expected Larry.

It's interesting to compare a 1930s first class stateroom with the standard cabin you get on today's cruise ships - much bigger and usually with a balcony. I bet using those bathtubs on QM was interesting given the propensity of the ship to roll.

I remember the (non functioning) tap controls in the bathroom too, one set for fresh water the other for salt, presumably pumped in from the Atlantic!

So TLB says......

"Don't get me wrong, staying on her was great, and the trip around the ship was really interesting"

I have read that one engine room had been removed, but did your tour include the remaining engine room?........in her day I believe it must have a mass of gleaming white lagged pipe work connected to an engine.........[but then a turbine is only a rectangular box with a shaft at the end  {-)]

If you didn't see it on BBC 1 try and get it on i Player. Peter Pan Goes Wrong. Probably the funniest programme you will see over the Christmas period.

Funniest movie I watched was 'Spy' with Miranda Hart, Jude Law, Jason Statham and Melissa McCarthy. I laughed from beginning to end. I'm not usually endeared to profanity and this movie is littered with it, but it makes it all the funnier, a total parody of all the James Bond movies.

I'll go along with you Colin. It's been a long time since I laughed as much as watching that. Quite happily watch again just to pick up little asides I'd missed.

I toured with the original cast back in the late 70's and what a great lot they were, wondered how a modern version would turn out.....saw it as well, and I agree.....yuk, misses all the things the original cast had  >:-o

The Poseidon Adventure (1972 film) - was on telly today.

Under 'ideal conditions', could an old style or even a modern ocean liner stay afloat upside down, even for a 'few' hours?

(  Obviously, upside down is not ideal but you know what i mean!   :P )
