Staying in Belfast today, and a visit to the famous Harland and Wolff shipyards on the Lagan where the Oceanic was under construction. It is very hard to see the ship through the forest of scaffolding throughout the yard. Given the ship and its history, the date should be easy enough to establish, and the place is a given. But what can we find out about the ship?
