iceberg IS the Titanic!
  [vote for,

Icetanic is a replica of the Titanic made entirely from ice. This would naturally only be the main hull, and of extra large proportions to sustain the gradual melting which would take place over the duration of a few trans-Atlantic journeys.

Every few voyages, Icetanic would simply be popped back into the giant mould kept in Harland and Wolff shipyard to be refortified with a few thousand tons of additional ice. (Max industries will supply the reactors to drive this part of the operation - see link)

       We strongly advise that, for the safety and peace of mind of all concerned, [MB]'s responsibility is limited purely to the critical task of re-arranging deck chairs.

       Pah. I have never designed a ship that sunk.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 29 2016

       That's because all but one so far fell to bits on the slipway before it was launched. You probably can't be held responsible for the one that caught fire, apart from the obvious fact that metallic sodium is generally recognized as a poor choice for the manufacture of anti-corrosion hull anodes.

       He's only making the ice and will be closely watched.

       Don't just watch him - make sure you count the spoons as well before you let him leave. And watch out for that "pet" monkey of his, too; it looks cute, but it's trained to steal credit cards.

       //that "pet" monkey of his// That is no way to refer to the Intercalary.

       "Evil little simian-featured kleptomaniac goblin" ?

       Come, come gentlemen! The intercalary does have redeeming qualities....like, err umm, umm...don't rush me..weird, I had my credit card a moment ago..   

       BTW how about freezing various mammoths and other item of provender in the ice...watch as small child sticks tongue onto frozen mammoth..etc

       If it were a cruise ship, would the mammoths take their cabin trunks ?

       It didn't rust now, did it?
RayfordSteele, Jul 29 2016

       Speaking of using Sodium as an anti-corrosion anode, does it produce electric current when reacting with water? Yeah it might be hard to measure with the explosion and all, but it just occurred to me that you might be able to get a large surge of current from an explosive reaction.
