(dBuneNews) - Titanic seems to be doomed as far as ship names are concerned. Almost a century after the first Titanic ship sunk on its maiden voyage, history has repeated itself with the sinking of another ship named Titanic.
Coincidentally, it was the maiden voyage of the boat as well. The ship which was named Titanic II sunk at the West Bay harbor in Dorset and the owner is grateful to the harbormaster for saving his life.
During an interview with the local media crew, the owner, Mark Wilkinson said that, "If it wasn't for the harbormaster I would have gone down with the Titanic."
The ship was 14-foot long and forty-something-year-old Wilkinson said he was returning after fishing when the incident happened. He explained that when he got to the harbor, he realized that water was getting into the boat and he had to be rescued by the crewmen at the harbor.
He admitted that he gets irritated when people ask him if he did hit an iceberg. A witness who saw the ship sink doesn't believe that it takes that much to sink a ship of Titanic II's size.
The eyewitness told media men that, "It wasn't a very big boat .. I think an ice cube could have sunk it!"
