Man Says His Titanic Replica Could Be Haunted
It’s been 100 years since the RMS Titantic struck an iceberg and sent more than 1,500 souls to their watery graves. In 2004, a Portsmouth man completed a replica of the ship – nine feet long, weighing more than 200 pounds. But according to the builder — the museum quality replica has recently acquired something that may now qualify it as a ‘ghost ship’. Who knows what lurks inside this replica of the ill fated RMS Titanic? The builder told Barbara Ciara that you can’t see it with the naked eye, but he took a photograph of the boat that revealed what he thinks are two ghostly images. Wyatt Jason Moore, better known as Chuck, says he discovered the spooky images just recently. “I couldn’t make it out until I looked at it very carefully and I found it was a bald headed man with a handle bar mustache, and I said to myself, what’s he doing there? Maybe it was someone that was aboard the Titanic that found a new home for himself.” It took 17,368 hours and over nine years to build the replica. Chuck took on the project after seeing the old black and white 1958 movie ‘A Night to Remember.’ Chuck, a retired architectural draftsman, studied old photographs of the Titantic and began his quest to build a spitting image of the vessel. “I got so engrossed in it I didn’t realize how much time goes by each day,” said Chuck. With painstaking detail, Chuck, wearing a special magnified glass attached to his glasses, used his special tools to freeze a moment in time on the replica. He re-created life on the ship.
