Titanic II Sinks Off England, Iceberg Not To Blame
Fortunately for Mr. Wilkinson, the West Bay harbormaster was at hand to throw him a life preserver. Unfortunately for Mr. Wilkinson, a tourist was on hand to take unflattering pictures.
"It's all a bit embarrassing," Mr Wilkinson told the British tabloid The Sun. "I'm fed up with people asking me if I hit an iceberg."
The RMS Titanic went down 99 years ago, killing 1,517, and has since been synonymous with tourist disaster. Fortunately Mr. Wilkinson's pride was the only casualty the second time around.
This is why you don't name your boat the Titanic II.
