I noticed in some of the pics showing some of the plates all the rivets are gone. Did they rust out faster or just popped and fell out?

Luckily, I managed to pass Spanish 1 after the second Attempt, I take Spanish II now. I will translate some of what he said (still had to use Google Translate LOL)

"I could never find it from the sides of the ship, I think the decks should be seen, especially the second class dining room. there is a part that conserved part of the parisien cafe but none of that i have seen"

I agree. But, A-Deck collapsed, so that crushed the Parisian cafe, and the remaining A-Deck Promenade. Sad. :(

Estoy de acuerdo. Pero, A-Deck colapsó, por lo que aplastó el café parisino y el resto del A-Deck Promenade. Triste. :(

apparently my reply didn't save. The rusticles, on the pic with the porthole, seem to coming out of places where rivets would be. Maybe, some of the rivets popped out when the Stern imploded?

Th more I look at it yes they probably popped out. Hard to to be sure though as some of the edges of the plates look so clean. As in no bending or tearing. I was thinking maybe they rusted out quicker but that makes no sense as there is still a lot of rivits left on the wreck that haven't.

literally anything to do with the Stern is a mystery. And unfortunately will stay that way, unless more footage comes out, or the fabled Stern interior footage come out as well....

Nice collection of pics. You mentioned they haven't released footage of the interior of the stern. Did they give any reason as to why? Curious.

Thanks Christian. No, (very unfortunately) have no idea why. I heard that in the closing segments of A&E's "The Legend Lives On" there was video of Nautile sending ROBIN into an unknown location, not the bow. Then, Charles Pelligrino and PH Nargeolet went inside and got to the pantry and the Bakery. It would be WONDERFUL to see that!

oh, and here's the outline of the Well Deck

P.S: May do the Fantail and if there's a port side flyover, then that's it. That's all the footage I can show without getting repetitive

Yes it would be nice to see the footage. From the last expedition the way Parks described it nature might provide some more access to places un-visited before the whole thing collapses. I've always wanted to see what was left inside the mail room. Probably not much if the mail bags were canvas but they might have had some special courier bags made of leather. Would be interesting to see the mail and documents of the time.

Here is footage of the mail room. The mail bags are covered with a living carpet of lifeforms that might be protecting the mail inside.

They are excellent. When the wreck eventually does collapse we can be thankful that footage and photographs like these will continue to exist for future historical reference and research.
