Sarel Gous, a South African multi-millionaire, once spent $600-million (U.S.) to build Titanic II, a floating tribute to the original luxury liner. "It will be based," he announced, "on the original vessel and will attempt to retain the ambience of the original Titanic. But it will be a different ship." How so? "It will be larger than the original which was only 883 feet long."
