So which part of the ship, would you save with your $1, Rob, and why?

You'd only get one square inch for that price!

I was thinking exactly the same!

You know, I was thinking of QM2, QE2, and QM as famous as well. I've bought $5 worth of the SSUS.

I read maritime matters for stuff like this. Peter and I were talking and think that the SSUSC has a really good plan. There is a fairly good chance things might work out (more of my opinion, but Peter agreed SSUSC has a really good plan and he has hope). I'm not saying anything final. Things might go the other way, but things are much brighter now than they have been in years.

I hope to see her used as a floating attraction in New York.

P.S. There will be debate over whether SSUS is the most famous ship that didn't sink, although can you really blame Susan for saying that? I mean, her grandfather built it. SSUS is probably the most over designed ocean liner in history, which ironically might have helped her demise (just speculating about being expensive to operate), and ironically also added to her appeal. Whenever I talk about the SSUS in Oklahoma, I tell them about the military specifications and it perks interest. It's really weird to be an ocean liner lover so far from the sea. We do have one of America's furthest inland ports, but whatever... :)

I hope QE2 gets to come to London. That would be so great. That is one of my favorite ships just like SSUS, ROTTERDAM and QM! All are in my top five! It is hard to rank which is which.
