The British luxury liner Titanic (46,000 gross tons) of the White Star Line, on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City, struck an iceberg about 153 km (about 95 miles) south of the Grand Banks of Newfoundland just before midnight on April 14, 1912.
The Titanic sunk in less than three hours. The ship was fitted with only enough lifeboats for about half of the passengers and crew. Of the more than 2,220 persons aboard, 1513 died. The loss of the Titanic was one of the worst maritime disasters in history.
The first item we offered for sale was our luxurious cotton terry bathrobes, which are provided for your use during your stay. After several days of laying back and relaxing in them, one couple simply told us.. "We can't imagine leaving without them!".
Nancy has discovered some lovely
aprons and had them monogrammed with our "Wayward Navigator" logo. In addition,
she has selected and monogrammed other lovely items of clothing such as shirts
and caps that we will be happy to show you.
When you visit the Wayward Navigator you will notice some superb decorative rope work throughout our home. For this rare and beautiful artwork, we have our talented friend Paddy Murphy to thank.
Paddy is a skilled practitioner of
the ancient arts of the Sailor. He creates absolutely stunning knotting, splicing
and ropework. We have implored Paddy to supply us with his rope keychains, bracelets,
napkin rings and his other creative and beautiful works of art.
