one of my hobbies is researching ships that was built on the clyde.
Queen Mary being the most famous one.
There is a story i am trying to find out if there is any truth in it.
when she was being named they discovered that there was an other boat named Queen mary, so they had to contact the owner of the little puffer to get them to change the name.
The owner of the puffer refused, and held out for a great deal of cash. when he re named the puffer, it sank a year
later with all hands lost.
It is considered very bad luck to change the name of a ship.
Do any of you know if this is true?
