Titanic CAD Plans has suspended operations permanently.

***NOTICE*** 4/15/2018 – After many active years in the Titanic Community, I have decided to withdraw from all participation in forums, private messaging, etc.   I have accomplished more than I originally imagined or planned.  Sir Issac Newton is quoted as saying “If I have seen further it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants.”  I feel the same way about anything I may have accomplished in the field of Titanic research.  So many before me laid groundwork without which I couldn’t have accomplished half of what I have.  It is now for others to carry this endeavor forward.  Hopefully there are new discoveries to be made and illumination to to be made of old discoveries which are as yet unnoticed.  I thank all who rendered their gracious assistance to me along the way.

Research Articles

I have written the following articles to address subjects where there has been a lot of speculation.  These articles contain my speculations guided by as much evidence as I could muster.  The reader can decide for himself whether the evidence supports my conclusions.
