My replica of the Titanic is HAUNTED by couple who died on original voyage: Extraordinary claim of model maker

By EMILY ANNE EPSTEIN

| 

A man says his exact replica of the ill-fated Titanic has two passengers: ghosts.

Wyatt Jason Moore, from  Portsmouth, Virginia, spent more than nine years to painstakingly produce the 200lb vessel that sits in his living room and now it appears two lost souls may have moved in.

Mr Moore said he'd been hearing strange noises near the ship and when he was snapping some photos of his prize possession, the apparitions appeared in the camera's lens.

'I couldn’t make it out until I looked at it very carefully and I found it was a bald headed man with a handle bar mustache, and I said to myself, what’s he doing there?' Mr  Moore told WTKR.

He said he was inspired to built the boat after watching the 1958 film A Night to Remember which chronicled the demise of the famous vessel.

 

 

As a retired architectural draftsman, he started studying old photographs of the Titanic in order to re-create the staircases, passageways and glory of the original.

This April marked the 100th year since the Titanic hit an iceberg took down more than 1,500 people with it.

'I got so engrossed in it I didn’t realize how much time goes by each day,' said Mr Moore. 'Took nine years, one week and five days to do it.'

'Maybe it was someone that was aboard the Titanic that found a new home for himself.'

Recently, Mr Moore took a series of photographs of the ship to create a large composite, but he noticed something strange, according to WTKR.

On the port side of the vessel, a man and a woman peer out of the portholes just above the life boats. According to Mr Moore, a bald-headed man with a mustache looks out one, while a woman, perhaps his companion, looks out the porthole beside him.

'Maybe it was someone that was aboard the Titanic that found a new home for himself,' Mr Moore mused.

He said he's not scared of the visitors, though doors have begun to mysteriously slam nearby the haunted ship. 'I leave them alone and they leave me alone,' he said.

Relatives of Mr Moore think the photograph of the can be explained by a reflection, but he says the portholes aren't covered in glass. He just tells the non-believers to 'suit yourself.'

Two years ago, he tried to sell it on Craigslist for $263,000.

'You have to figure in my time, which I totaled at 17,368 hours I put to it, and I charge $15.15 an hour. I put about $5,000 of my own material. You add that all up, and that’s where I got the price,' he told The Virginian-Pilot at the time.

He wasn't able to find the right person to part with the boat, so now he hopes a museum will be interested in taking the boat - and its passengers - off his hands.
