I used to write regularly for one of IPC's yachting magazines. The editorial team were very good at proof reading in those days so typos and poor grammar rarely got to the printed page, but the printers were notorious for printing photographs the wrong way round! (Text and basic layout was sent by FTP link but photographs were scanned and placed by the printers themselves.)

More recently I spotted a copy of the Titanic Magazine on a shelf at WH Smiths. Seafarers will see the problem!





Let me just say it should come as no surprise that the iceberg didn't know which way the ship was travelling.

The green and red navigation lights are the wrong way round!

Yes, when in forward motion the red light should be on the port (left) side and green on the starboard (right) side .

Yes, exactly Jim (and Richard)!

I put this image on another forum a few months back but nobody there could work it out.

I should add; there are strict rules about the positioning of all navigation lamps, (not just port and starboard lamps) to minimise the risk of collision with other ships as in total darkness there are few clues to the heading of other vessels at sea. Strictly speaking only the port OR starboard Nav lamp should be visible at any one time unless the ship is viewed head on. Similar rules apply to aircraft. The image depicted with both port and starboard Nav lamps clearly visible from the starboard bow would never get past Lloyds.

The Titanic also looks to be very 'Light of Load' with far more boottop visible above the waterline than would ever be the case with a loaded passenger liner. (An empty VLCC or bulk carrier maybe.) If she was really floating that high above her load line I doubt that she would have sunk after striking the iceberg.

Surely that shouldn’t have come as a surprise? I mean if it’s not on display I doubt they have secret stocks of culinary oddities ‘under the counter’ !!

“Rabbit on a stick sir?” Certainly but keep it in this brown bag, don’t want to draw attention.

Well they have so much on display it is easy to miss things. And unlike a cerTain other supermarket Sainsbury's (and Waitrose) Deli counters are open every day, but that is another subject altogether.
