Launch date for the new Charles Hays

I understand that the launch date for the Prince Rupert Port Authority’s new harbour patrol vessel the ‘Charles Hays’ has been selected to be April 14th. Which is the date that the Titanic hit an iceberg and sank in 1914 killing Charles Hays himself along with hundreds of other passengers. I am just curious if anyone knows if this date chosen was by accident or by design? As mariners in general tend to be a fairly superstitious bunch and this date could be ominous to say the least. Thankfully our port is iceberg free.
I have seen the new boat built locally by Broadwater Industries and it is an absolutely beautiful craft.

I’m sure they didn’t know but I’m sure they will :smile: although it hit the iceberg on the 14th and sank on the 15th
