Accepted version[ edit ] During her maiden voyage , the famous ocean liner struck an iceberg at Gardiner’s Ship That Never Sank[ edit ] One of the most controversial   and complex theories was put forward by Robin Gardiner in his book, Titanic: The Ship That Never Sank?. Morgan that had acquired the White Star Line in Olympic was the slightly older sister of Titanic, built alongside the more famous vessel but launched in October Her exterior profile was nearly identical to Titanic, save for minor details such as the number of portholes on the forward C decks of the ships, the spacing of the windows on the B decks, and the forward section of the A deck promenade on Titanic that had been enclosed only a few weeks before she set sail on her ill-fated maiden voyage. Both ships were built with linoleum floors, but shortly before she was due to set sail J. Bruce Ismay , managing director of the White Star Line, inexplicably ordered the floors aboard Titanic carpeted over.

Whiting worth the effort Feb 08 Whiting reports from Westernport this week have been a bit patchy, with quite a few anglers talking of hard fishing and sparse action. Many anglers who have been going out and ‘staying put’ in known areas have been struggling a bit, but the guys constantly moving about and trying different things are getting some nice fish. Fishing deep has been productive for anglers recently, with less fish coming aboard but much better quality in the fish that are.
Just make sure you have suitable ‘deep water’ whiting rods, as many standard ‘bank’ whiting rods will be overloaded with the extra weight needed in the deeper water. Customer Steve fished out from Warneet earlier this week and while the reports were grim, Steve and his mate managed 10 whiting between them – with only 2 fish measuring under 40cm. The boys worked hard and found the better fish a bit deeper in the 10m area, with the run out tide providing the action, and baits of pipi and mussel fishing the best for them.
Staff member Don fished around the top end as well over the weekend where him and mate Sam caught 17 fish. Fishing in around 5m of water, the bite started going as the run out tide started gaining momentum and the fish wouldn’t look past a small pipi fished on a size 6 ‘worm.

The winds are expected to drop off by this weekend. Tuna to 20kg have been caught in 50 metres of water but if the weather is too rough to chase the tuna you could try for some salmon trolling lures behind the surf. Whiting, squid and snapper can also be found inside the harbour Silver trevally have moved into the harbour at Queenscliff. Fish to 45cm are being caught so there is some fun for those wanting to throw some soft plastics around A few nice snapper have been reported by charter operators lately so it might be worth having a go before they pod up and head out of the bay Squid and whiting at St Leonards with the larger whiting near the mouth of Swan Bay Locally, Newlyn Reservoir has seen some very nice redfin caught on lures but bait would be just as good if not better.
Early morning is proving to be the best time with fish over 40cm being caught so it is well worth a look Reports of brown trout at Lake Wendouree using soft plastics in the deeper water.

That said, I am posting this on his behalf as he brought an item out today and said “i’ve never been able to figure out what this is” and I said “we’ll figure it out dad” but I have no idea how. I wish I’d gotten a little better description but here are the pics. It is a heavy object, he claims it is brass. It is about 6 inches in length, being maybe inches wide. It has some sort of a post coming out of the bottom that I have to assume was originally used to insert into something or other.
It has two flat-tish sides that look like they were originally meant to house string or something.

April 10, Upcycle Style: Braided T-shirt Rug I love making projects that involve at least one of the following criteria: Upcycle — Most of said t-shirts were well past their use by date with most of them having holes, stretching or stains, so charity donation was not an option. Usually I tear old shirts up for dusting rags, but the truth is, who needs to dust that much?

Want to know more, or have a specific question? Read More When Bailey first started attending lessons he lacked in confidence and was unable to wet his hair or face without panicking or getting upset. Working closely with Kristy Teacher , Bailey began to show signs of confidence in the water. During another family visit to the pool Bailey was involved in a small incident where he had attempted to climb out of the pool and had slipped back and fell into deeper water.
As we rushed to his aid, much to our surprise, Bailey had happily surfaced after a couple of seconds and was doggy paddling his way back to the ledge. We would like to thank Paul Sadler Swimland Melton for their amazing service and support with Bailey.

Fishing Reports for Victoria, Westernport and Port Phillip Bay
Estuary fishing slowing down with cooler weather Apr 28 Most of the Gippsland estuaries have started slowing down over the past month or so as the water starts to cool down. Bream, flathead and most other species are still being caught but not in the numbers compared to the warmer months of the year. This time of year however can be good for quality size bream, with some of the larger fish feeding up before the winter pre-spawn. Staff member Dylan has been paddling around some of the eastern estuaries recently, where some nice flathead and bream have been caught.

History of the Australian Bushrangers
In this story of the bushrangers I do not pretend to have included the names of all those who have at various times been called bushrangers in Australia. That, as will be seen from what I have said in the earlier chapters, would be not merely impossible but useless. I believe, however, that I have collected some particulars about all those who succeeded in winning even a local notoriety, and I have also endeavoured to supply such personal characteristics of the leaders in the movement as may throw some light on the causes which induced them to “take to the bush.
The story is a terrible one.

Western Port mixed results Nov 27 While Western Port has been fishing well for good variety, it seems a fair bulk of anglers out doing most of their snapper fishing have been out in Port Phillip so reports are less than normal. There have been decent reports of snapper coming from around the port, but the main hotspots are the ‘Lysaughts’ region, Rhyll and Cowes deep, and through the ‘corals’ area. The bait preference for the Western Bay has been pilchard, or fresh baits of locally caught species like squid, salmon, couta and yakkas.
Customer Bart had a good session with some mates out from Rhyll. The guys managed 3 table sized gummies and a good bag of snapper to around 3kg fishing in Bart said that pilchard was by far the most effective bait, and the fish bit best around the last stage of the run out tide. On the whiting front, many customers have been remarking “Have the whiting have started already? The Whiting normally start around September in the port but number catches are patchy, with larger fish making up the bags.
Currently at present there are good numbers along the banks throughout the top end, with some quality amongst them. As the heat of Summer approaches the school fish will make up the bulk of the catch up along the banks, but right now there are some good ones about. Staff member Don has been out on the ‘tings’ again which is no shock to us, with fish to around the 40cm marking up his recent bag.
Fishing deep in Bagge Harbour towards ‘Crawfish’ Don and mate managed 30 fish with lots around the 37cm size. Usual baits of pipi worked well but long thin strips of fresh squid were also very effective on ‘worm’ style hooks in the current.
